Bug Report

User Story

As a donor, I want to be able to change the focus of a field by clicking on it only once so that I can enter information.

Current Behavior

Currently, if the amount field is selected on a multilevel form with custom amounts enabled, and then you click to focus on the Prénom field, it shifts focus from the amount field to the first level:


Expected Behavior

One click should cause the focus to shift to the Name field.

Bug Type

  • This bug describes functionality that once worked as expected in version X.X.X.
  • This bug describes functionality that never worked as expected.
  • I am not sure whether this functionality ever worked as expected.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Change the site language to French fr_FR
  2. create a form with multilevels displayed as buttons, and then enable custom amounts.
  3. on the front end, click into the amount field, and then click on the Prénom field.


Acceptance Criteria

  • Clicking on the Prenom field changes focus immediately to that field.
  • The fix does not affect english forms, or other language forms.

Slack Call Summary

Participants: @kakshak @ravinderk
Topic: Discussion about the focus issue
Results: We have discussed that if the user leaves the amount field and move to another field ( like a first name or last name ) then it's a default behavior that user should know about that which level user is into and if user wants to change that then he/she can customize the CSS for the website.

@kevinwhoffman I've check that and I think it's a default behaviour of Give plugin. So, user will know in which level currently he/she is. If user wants to edit that focus then I've provided the solution that can be implement for the user speicific website.

Please let me know your thoughts on this.

Thanks for the clarification @kakshak. In my tests the other day I wasn't seeing this default behavior... which is likely a mistake on my part, I see it now regardless of language.

I still think this needs some attention from a user experience perspective.

I'd expect the amount to stay colored even once the user has moused into another field. Perhaps style based on give-default-level instead of (or in addition to) on focus.

This would also alleviate this user's problem, which is that it takes two clicks to get into the field to enter the First Name if you come directly from the amount field.

I will set expectations accordingly with the user, either way.

@Benunc I agree that it should only take one click to jump from the amount field to the name field. The selected button style should also be maintained regardless of focus.

The likely explanation is that some JavaScript is hooking into the blur event of the amount field and preventing default behavior that would otherwise focus on the name input. This blur event only happens on the first click, which is why the second click works.

Punting this to 2.4.1 as it's a minor UX improvement that still needs further investigation.

Related to this, users have asked for a long time to allow the custom amount to be the default option. The only way we can do that currently is with a jQuery snippet that focuses on the amount field. When that happens, we should ensure that the Custom Amount button maintains focus.

Here's the snippet:
