Updating hidden field with javascript. The value doesn't submit.

I've got a couple of Hidden fields where I'm setting the values with jQuery but the values don't come through in the submission.Data array.

I can see in the browser dev tools that it is set.

Any clues?

Hi,

Your fields are Pre-defined hidden element blocks or custom hidden element blocks (inherit from HiddenElementBlockBase) ?

And how do you set those values, on page load or right before xhr request is sent ?

Hi Kenny,

I've given it a try with an Alloy site with forms added and tried modifying the value of a hidden field via JavaScript and it posted the data correctly for me. To follow on from what Quan said, I wonder whether the issue is that the data is being posted before the value is being updated.

Sorry for the late reply, I had to reinstall everything on my laptop and we've been moving out of our house. :( 

These were custom hidden element blocks updated during page load. I was able to workaround the issue by storing the value in a cookie and then using a FormElementBlock that reads the cookie.
