Tree keeps expanding after collapsing in Form designer

When working with the Sitecore Form designer I was attempting to update the Redirect to Page submit action. A weird thing kept happening when I would edit the redirect page. The tree view would keep expanding after it was collapsed.

In order to stop this from happening I had to enable a feature that helps switch focus and expand the slected tree node at once.

This is done by:

  • opening the /sitecore/client/Applications/FormsBuilder/Components/Layouts/Actions/RedirectToPage item in the core database;
  • select the “Presentation” tab >> “Details” button
  • click the “ItemTreeView” rendering
  • find the “Behavior” section >>the “ClickFolderMode” field amd select “Select and Expand” option.
  • Save changes

Once this was done, the treeview worked as expected. I would like to thank sitecore support for helping me solve this little issue. I hope someone finds this tidbit helpful.
