Fields.submit is not working. What am I doing wrong?

I have a password field and a confirm password field. I am comparing the password fields and only want the password sent to the database not the repassword (Confirm Password). But I can't seem to get it to work. My code is as follows...

 $(document).ready(function() {
     editor = new $.fn.dataTable.Editor( {
         ajax: "users-con.php",
         table: "#users",
         fields: [ {
                 label: "Password:",
                 name: "oesa_users.password",
                 fieldInfo: "Password must be 8 charactors or more!",
                 type: "password",
             }, {
                 label: "Confirm Password:",
                 name: "repassword",
                 **submit: false,**
                 fieldInfo: "Type in the same password as above.",
                 type: "password",
             }
 ...

I also have an editor preSubmit like so...

        editor.on('preSubmit', function( e, data, action ){
        if(action === 'edit' || action === 'create' ){
          var password = this.field('oesa_users.password').val();
            var repassword = this.field('repassword').val();
            var password_length = this.field('oesa_users.password').val().length;
     //--- Compare Password and Confirm fields. ---//
       if ( ( password === repassword ) && (password >= 8) && ( password !== '' ) ) {
 //        alert('Encrypt the password');
                return true;
       }
     //--- Check if both fields match. ---//    
       else if ( password !== repassword ) {
                alert('Password and confirm password does not match!');
                return false;
       }
            //--- Check if password is blank. ---//    
       else if ( password === '' ) {
                alert('Password cannot be blank!');
                return false;
       }
                        //--- Check if password has enough charactors. ---//    
       else if ( password_length < 8 ) {
                alert('Password needs 8 charactors or more!');
                return false;
       }
        }
 })

Then it goes to the server side script to be posted. I thought I read that Fields.submit would allow or prevent the submission of the field but it is not working for me. I am still seeing it in the developer tools and editor throws an error because the repassword is not a field in the database...

data[row_9][oesa_users][password]: password
data[row_9][oesa_users][user_telephone]: 9168435555
data[row_9][oesa_users][permissions]: admin
data[row_9][oesa_users][status]: ACTIVE
data[row_9][oesa_users][last_verified]: 2018-12-03
**data[row_9][repassword]: password**

    What version of Editor are you using please? As you say, the fields.submit option should mean that the field isn't submitted to the server.

    Thank you for reply Alan. I'm using 1.7.4.

  • th3t1ckth3t1ck Posts: 23Questions: 6Answers: 1

    So I just read the release notes for 1.8.0 and it looks like that Fields.submit is not part of 1.7.4. Is that correct?

  • th3t1ckth3t1ck Posts: 23Questions: 6Answers: 1

    Well I just upgraded to 1.8.1 and it works. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction Allan.

    Answer ✓

    Yes you are exactly correct - the fields.submit option was added in 1.8. I had a typo in my link above, fixed now and it shows the version it was introduced in at the top right.

    Excelent. I totaly missed that "since version" when I read about the feature. I'm loving this package. I wrote my first app for the group I work in and they love it. Word got out and now I'm writing another one for a different group. Of course both groups do totaly different jobs. You're making me look good Allan :)
