Checkboxes are not selected though values display on Clipboard



Checkboxes are not selected on the PDF generated though the values are available on the Clipboard. However, the checkboxes are selected on the User Interafce (UI) at runtime.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Generate a PDF using the HTMLToPDF activity
  2. Pass the HTML stream as the rule-obj-HTML rule
  3. Include a non auto generated section
  4. Select the checkbox based on a Java code

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules. Syntax issue with retrieving values from the Clipboard page. The if condition (a==true) evaluates the issue incorrectly.


Perform the following local-change: 
Retrieve the Clipboard property values using the below Java code:

ClipboardProperty x = tools.findPage("pyWorkPage").getProperty("pageListProperty");

For iterating the pagelist use below logic

java.util.Iterator itr = x.iterator()

To get each property in the each page list 
while (itr.hasNext())
ClipboardProperty y = (ClipboardProperty);
ClipboardPage z = y.getPageValue();
propsVal = z.getString(".propLabel");//returns true or false
