Clicking checkbox label selects a different checkbox



Clicking checkbox labels causes a different checkbox to be checked or unchecked in a section, where multiple checkboxes reference the same property name on different pages.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a section with two checkbox controls. Checkbox1 references TopPage1.PropertyNameX and Checkbox2 references TopPage2.PropertyNameX.
  2. TopPage1 and TopPage2 have the same class due to which both the pages have the PropertyNameX in their class.
  3. Click the Checkbox2 caption (and not the checkbox itself). The checkbox value of Checkbox1 changes from TRUE to FALSE and vice versa.

Root Cause

Property names were used for ID generation. When a property with the same name (but in different pages) appeared on the screen multiple times, actions were performed on the first checkbox when labels were clicked.
