Cannot include section by property reference



When a section is embedded in another section using a property reference, error occurs and the system is unable to load that section at runtime.

Error Messages

Unable to open an instance using the given inputs: pxObjClass = "Rule-HTML-Section", pyClassName = "Class of the section", pyStreamName = ".property"

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Include a section in another section.
  2. Use page context as the Clipboard page.
  3. Use a section by property reference.
  4. Provide a property from the Clipboard page class.

Root Cause

To include a section in another section using property reference, the reference property must be from the parent section class context and not from the page class context.


As a local-change, use the reference property from the parent section class context.
