At least not at the start of a form field. When the field value is retrieved with SEARCH and $formField(xxx), the exclamation mark is shown. <nop> does work as expected.

I think this is an edge case; anyone who is able to write a SEARCH to populate a form will quickly realise what is going on and change to a <nop>. So it ought to be fixed, but I'm regrading it to Low priority.


Exclamation mark rendering was updated recently - is this still a problem?


  • Search: %SEARCH{"Hairy stuff" format="$formfield(Summary)" topic="Item3720" nosearch="on" nototal="on"}%
  • Output: Nop with exclamation mark does not work when in form field

Apparently not, closing.
