ActionAutoSubmit does not submit the FlowAction



When pyActionArea section is used in Perform harness, and has one of the local action as Out-Of-The-Box “ActionAutoSubmit” HTML, it does not submit the flow action.

And, this functionality works fine when “Action” section is used in Perform harness.

Error Messages


Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a FlowAction and use ActionAutoSubmit.
2. Run the flow and choose the Flow Action.
3. The form is not submitted.

Root Cause

The issue is with the code in ActionAutoSubmit HTML.


Changed the HTML to JSP and code implemented to execute at server side. The code works for both "pyActionArea" and "Action" sections.

    String strMessages = tools.getPrimaryPage().getMessagesAll();
        if(strMessages.length() == 0)
            tools.appendString("if( != null && typeof( != \"undefined\" && == \"actionIFrame\" ){");
