      Description

      This is a usability issue when creating a new Calculated Simple question type. When the Generate wildcards button is pressed the form refreshes and the wildcard header is in collapsed form and so it is not clear that the wildcards have been generated. Clicking the expand option then displays the wildcards. This might be improved by changing the question editing form to include

      $mform->closeHeaderBefore('additemhdr1');

      under the line reading

      $mform->setExpanded('additemhdr1');

      So the newly generated wildcards are visible

      As discussed at
      https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=275566

      I am not certain how many Moodle versions this affects, but I suspect it is most currently supported versions.
