Amount format changes when refreshing other layout



There are two layouts: layout 1 and layout 2. 

In layout 1 user configured a drop-down and a text control and the text control accepts decimal value which gets formatted and Layout 2 gets refreshed based on the change in the value of the drop-down configured in layout 1.

However when the user selects a value in the drop down then the decimal value formatting is lost though there is no refresh condition set on layout 1

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1) Create two layouts.
2) Configure a drop-down and a text control in layout 1. 
3) configure the refresh condition for the layout 2 based on the change in the value of the layout1. 
4) Give a decimal value in the text box in layout 1. 
5) Now select some value in the drop down configured. 
6) Observe the layout 2 gets refreshed but also the formatting of the decimal value is not retained.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules

In processOnBeforeSubmit function, the reload element which is passed contains the entire section and the data-value is replaced.

Since entire section was being sent, the other layout as well was getting refreshed.


Apply HFix-29670.
