A User Defined Field (UDF) is created in the manager, and the Default Value is set to grab a registry key value. Then in the Options Set | Collection Editor tab the Autofill value for this UDF is set to "Always" If this is set it will not change the value. It will only change the value if the Autofill is set to "When Empty" and the field is currently empty.


This is working as designed. To get the registry key to always update the value of the UDF when the Autofill option is set to "Always" the Default Value field in the Collection Editor has to have the registry key value set. It cannot just be set in the UDF when it is first created.
