Summary14367: IE11 Question Code crashes page if not unique
DescriptionEntering a duplicate Question Code in IE11 & pressing save, no longer results in the validation error message - the page crashes with a console error.
Steps To ReproduceScenario:

When creating a new question, you must give it a 'Code' and this must be unique. In previous versions on LimeSurvey, for IE11, you would get an error message if you enter a duplicate code which says 'Question codes must be unique. Required' and you cant proceed to save.

You still get this error message in Chrome/Edge/FireFox in the latest version of LimeSurvey (3.15.4+181109).


In IE11, you should still get this validation error and not be able to save until you enter a unique code.


There is no error message, you can save and then the page crashes with a console error of '$' not defined (see screenshot). If you press back in the browser, you then get the pop up validation errors regarding unique code being required (also screen-shotted).
TagsNo tags attached.

Hello charlottej990,
I checked this with the latest version and could not reproduce, so this is most likely fixed for good.
Therefore, I am closing this issue. If you still can reproduce the issue using the latest version, please feel free to re-open the issue.
Thank you!
