VSTS Custom Field lose its value when State changes on VS2008 Work Item GUI


I have been working on customizing Team Foundation Server (2008) Work Item (WI) Templates for a while.

I have realized something strange actually a behaviour conflict between the Work Item edit GUI in VS2008 and the WI edit web GUI, VSTS Web Access GUI so I want to share it with you in this blog.

The problem arises when a custom HTML field is added to the Fields tab in the Work Item Template opened by Process Editor.
I added this custom field also to the layout on the Layout tab.

During a bug is being edited using the updated work item template, when I enter some data into the recently added customer HTML field (this is the same type as the Microsoft.VSTS.CMMI.Symptom) and then change the State field from Proposed to Active, the contents of the new field is cleared.

But this problem does not occur on the Visual Studio Team System Web Access New Work Item (Bug) template which also inherits from the same WI (Work Item) template.

Web Access seems to be working better than the GUI used in the Visual Studio 2008.

Is there any thing am I doing wrong, I do not know.
