After a relation reference widget is filled, form closed and layer edits saved, the id of related feature is saved in the attribute table. But, on additional opening of the form, relation reference widget is not filled with correct values, instead showing the last entry in the parent relation.
This defeats the whole purpose of the widget.
If i remember correctly this was working fine in the 2.10 but i cannot confirm because i no longer have it installed.
I'm enclosing screenshots:
- on "before" image the value is entered. Coresponding id (14) is saved in the attribute table.
- on "after" image the form is reopened and the relation reference widget loads the data for last entry in parent reference (id: 27)
