Action is not allowed as it is outside the current transaction



An error occurs on submitting a form.

Error Messages

This action is not allowed as it is outside the current transaction

Steps to Reproduce

1. Configure a section with some properties and button with run script event.
2. In run script, submit the form by using doFormSubmit API.

Root Cause

A software use or operation error: 
After clicking button, button was not disabled and multiple clicks were carried out. So multiple requests were sent to server for single action, resulting transaction mismatch error.


Perform the following local-change: 

On button click, a busy indicator is displayed which will mask the applicable section. Now user can not perform multiple clicks and it will appear to user that some action is processing at server side.

function show()
pega.u.d.busyIndInterval = 0;

function hide()
pega.u.d.busyIndInterval = 2000;
