Autocomplete is not working properly in Table layouts



Unable to select the required value from pxAutocomplete. This occurs when the control is deprecated and updated to pxAutocomplete with the new control in a table layout.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Select a table layout with an autocomplete control in it. Source for the autocomplete is a value list.
  2. Update the autocomplete and configure the source as a Clipboard page through an activity. In the portal, the results display for the autocomplete. Unable to select a value from the list using both the keyboard and mouse.

Root Cause

The autocomplete cell control refers the target field to the associative property. This property cannot be fetched from the value list. This is because the value list refers to the ordered list (for example, valuelist(1) and not valuelist.pyLabel).


As a local-change, set the table source as page list instead of value list.
