Summary14367: IE11 Question Code crashes page if not unique

Entering 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 Reproduce


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).
