Dynamic initial value text boxes

This issue has been solved. See solution.


On one of my pages, I have a selectable grid that displays an array of information. I also have some text boxes who's initial values are set to the grid selection variable. I want the user to be able to click on the grid (the grid posts form on value change) and the selected info fills the text boxes. The workfow doesn't populate the text boxes when I make a selection, I have to go back a page then come back into the page for them to populate accordingly. Why doesn't it all happen on the same page? Isn't that the purpose of the post value on form change? Is there another way around this? Am I doing it wrong? Please help!

BONUS -- Is it possible to perform a double click on a row in a grid instead of selecting a row then clicking a button to move to another page? (or whatever action)

Don't have an answer, though I did just spend the last 30 minutes trying to make sense of this. What I did find as a work around only really works if you don't mind some formatting issues.

If you use a select list component, you can set the whole outcome as the link, which then only requires a single click. This will create an additional outcome on your form for clicks from that component. Using this, I was able to loop right back to the form and fields were updated. The downside is that as it's not a grid, if you are putting in more than one or two items per line, it can get really messy and fields won't line up.
