Able to select more than one results using Radio button in Grid



When using pagination to display multiple rows in a page, radio buttons selection does not work across pages in the repeat grid.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a repeating grid with page list as the source
  2. Include the pyRowSelected radio button as one of the columns in the grid.
  3. Select a row by clicking the radio button in one page.
  4. Navigate to the next page or any other page.
  5. Select a row in that page.

Root Cause

Repeat grid does not select and clear the values in the Clipboard. Hence, when pagination occurs, it may not deselect any row. The radio buttons are cleared by the client and values do not propagate to the Clipboard.


Perform the following local-change:

Override the setOtherRadioToFalse JavaScript (JS) function provided by the repeating grid. Invoke an activity in the server to maintain the state of the radio buttons.

1. Include the following snippet in the UserWorkForm.

pega.u.d.attachOnload(function() { 
if (pega.ui && pega.ui.grid) { 
pega.ui.grid.prototype.setOtherRadioToFalse = function(element, event) { 
var currentName =; 
if (typeof( == "undefined" || == "") = currentName.replace(/[\d]/g, ""); 
var radioButtonsList = pega.util.Dom.getElementsById(, this.gridDiv); 
var len = radioButtonsList.length
for (var i = 0; i < len; i++) { 
if (radioButtonsList[i]) { 
if (radioButtonsList[i].name != currentName) { 
radioButtonsList[i].checked = false; 

var currentRowRef =; 
// console.log(currentRowRef); 
var activityUrl = SafeURL_createFromURL(pega.u.d.url); 
activityUrl.put("pyActivity", "@baseclass.SetOtherRadioToFalse"); 
activityUrl.put("propRef", currentRowRef);  pega.u.d.asyncRequest("POST", activityUrl); 

}, true); 

2. Create an activity @baseclass.SetOtherRadioToFalse on the server with a Java step. Add the below code in this step.

String propertyReference = tools.getParamValue("propRef"); 

// Get the property name 
String propertyName = propertyReference.substring(propertyReference.lastIndexOf('.') + 1); 

// Get the page list name 
String rowPageRef = propertyReference.substring(0, propertyReference.lastIndexOf('.')); 
String pageListRef = rowPageRef.substring(0, propertyReference.lastIndexOf('(')); 
int rowNumber = Integer.parseInt(rowPageRef.substring(propertyReference.lastIndexOf('(') + 1, propertyReference.lastIndexOf(')'))); 

// oLog.error(pageListRef + " | " + rowNumber + " | " + propertyName); 
Iterator plIterator = tools.getProperty(pageListRef).iterator(); 
while(plIterator.hasNext()) { 
ClipboardPage rowPage = ((ClipboardProperty); 

if (rowPage.getReference().equals(rowPageRef)) { 
} else {
