The contents of a multi-list do not display after saving it



The contents of a multi-list do not display after saving it.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure a multiselect control with a data page as a source in a section
  2. Create a local action and reference the multiselect control as a section
  3. Select the options from the multiselect control during runtime
  4. Click Save
  5. Run the local action. The multiselect control does not render

Root Cause

New controls like multiselect, timeline, slider etcetera are supported only in Template mode. In local action, the section with the case, renders in non-Template mode.


Perform the following local-change:

Add the below snippet in UserWorkForm (HTML fragment):

var multiSelectHook = function (){
$(".container-multiselect").each(function( index ) {
var caseActionArea = $(this).closest("[node_name='pyCaseActionArea']");
var attr = caseActionArea.attr('data-template');
if (!(typeof attr !== typeof undefined && attr !== false)) {
pega.u.d.attachOnload(multiSelectHook, true);
