We are testing v7.6.3 and we notice there was an "enhancement" such that the first row of a grid is automatically the "Selected" field whenver the form is refreshed. 

The unfortunate result is when a user tabs out of a field that "has dependents" a form refresh is triggered and the form jumps down into the grid.  This would be terribly confusing for users since their intention was simply to tab into the next field - not all the way down to the grid.  Also, with any form that exceeds the window height - the form take an ugly jump down to the grid.

Has anyone run into this?  Is there a way to turn off this new "feature"?

In addition, if you're clicking through tabs at the top of the screen and one of the forms has a grid, you may receive a "Stack Overflow" javascript error.  To get the error, click on the form with the grid and then click on a new tab as the grid is doing the auto-selection.

Do you have any idea on how to turn the auto-selection off?

Although it was a bit flippant, I immediately started wondering if it is actually possible. I assume it is....

When we encountered an issue when 7.6.2.0 first came out we had to revert back to 7.6.1.x.  Unfortunately, this meant uninstalling BPM completely, then starting to build back up from 7.6.0.  At least it was a development server so wasn't too bad of an impact.  (I'm glad we caught the issue before we got as far as production.)

Unless there is a backup of the 7.6.2 available, if they need to revert, I suspect the same approach will need to occur.

Rebuild's the only way to restore an old version, unless you want to go creating a VM of your old system before you start.

I'd say create it on VM anyway - it's just far easier to administrate when you need to roll back or move to a more advanced engine, plus it saves on servers and power usage if your loading isn't that horrific.

Has there been a resolution to this thread?  I unfortunately have taken over an incumbant code and trying to disable the auto click of a grid when the form is loaded.  It prepopulates the fields associated with the grid click.

Is there a way to override the onclick event of the grids?

We are now on V9, but as I recall a later release of 7.6.2 resolved this "preseleted" row issue.  All I recall is that we were on a 7.6.2.x when we migrated to V9.  Other than an upgrade, or possibly a hotfix for that version, I don't recall another means to get around this.

Saw this on the OT KBase ... I suspect based upon the timing it was posted due, directly or indirectly, to your question, though the article states with 7.6.3 and 7.6.4.  7.6.2 may be "stuck" as is.
