Checkbox cntrl: Caption Click In Section Sets Wrong Property



In a section where multiple checkboxes reference the same property name on different pages, clicking the labels for the checkboxes can cause a different checkbox to be checked or unchecked.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a section with two checkbox controls.
  2. Make Checkbox 1 is reference TopPage1.PropertyNameX. Checkbox 2 is referencing TopPage2.PropertyNameX.
  3. Ensure that TopPage1 and TopPage2 have the same class, so both pages have the PropertyNameX in their class.
  4. Click on the checkboxcaption (so not the checkbox itself) of checkbox 2, the checkbox-value of checkbox 1 is changing from TRUE to FALSE and vice versa.

Root Cause

ID generation for only uses property names so if a property with the the same name (but in different pages) appears on the screen multiple times the actions performed when clicking the labels get actions on the first checkbox.
