Reported in TWiki:Support/SID-00489 by TWiki:Main/LuisEnrique.

Likely caused by early return in sub displayFormField of Search.pm, introduced by Item6082 fix, TWikirev:17729.

Hello, I got two TWiki Systems running on different Win XP Workstations. On the one System with TWiki Release 4.3.1 SEARCH with formfield doesn't work like it is shown in SID-00489. On the old one with TWiki Release 4.2.1 it is working without problems. First I was looking for missing Changes in Search.pm, but I cannot find anything wrong. The Bugfixes are all in the code. What else can I do to get the SEARCH with $formflied to work again?

Pinging this bug, came up at TWiki:Support/SID-00931.

The $formfield(Fieldname, 20, ...) doesn't work. Docs at FormattedSearch.
