Cannot run Script in checkbox event inside a Grid Repeat



One of the requirements is to run the activity on click of check box control.

But till Pega 7.1.9, checkbox control is only meant for Selecting purpose. However, it only works if the script is called outside of the Grid Repeat Layout.

When user calls the script inside the Grid Repeat Layout, the busy indicator never shows up. Click actions are not triggering for check boxes in repeat layout.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Log into Designer studio.
2. Create section and configure check box under Repeating Layout.
3. Configure run activity as on click event. Observe that the activity will not be executed on click of check box control.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules:

For radio buttons and check box controls, data-click attribute has value in the form of '...' and the action for data-click are defined in the parent element (either div or span).

Whilst performing the click event it is looping back to parent element and for parent element disabled attribute is not found so the browser is assuming that the element is not disabled.
