An error occurred in the form’s rules or code

1 comment July 12th, 2010

The error is referring to a condition limit of 16, meaning there is a hardcoded limit of 16 changes that can be performed on a field without user interaction.  This is actually a very hard limit to hit.  One field would literally have to contain over 16 conditions set within a rule for this error to occur.

The error is likely occurring in the form because a condition of a rule has been applied that is causing an infinite loop that exceeds 16 and the error described is thrown.  The customer should check for multiple “or” statements within a condition that was set on a rule.

You should attempt to change one of the “or” statements to “and” to see if the form still throws this error.  This could be occurring with any condition that is set, but seems to happen a lot when someone uses a lot of “or” statements.
