Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a Section in the Application. The Section should be composed of couple of Repeat Grid with-in a Single Dynamic Layout. 
  2. Configure both the Repeat Grids identical. Both should be progressive in nature and should consist one Drop-down control and one delete button. 
  3. Both the Drop-down control should be sourced with different Declare page which access same Data Class. 
  4. Run the Usecase and try to choose a value from Drop-down in Grid one. 
  5. Move to Grid two, try to set value from Drop-down, observer that irrelevant values from other fields of Data class are getting populated in Drop-down rather than the actual one's. 

Root Cause

This is a limitation of Layout control.

During runtime, it never generates any unique Id. So in a scenario where more than one control present in  a single Dynamic Layout sourcing a single Data Class, causes issue. During execution of the first drop-down, the entire Section gets executed. So for the other control, source gets changes to irrelevant values. 


 Move the drop-down controls to a separate section and drop the sections with drop-down into the cells of the grids.


 If the above change makes no difference then move both the Repeat Grids (Grid Repeat Layout 1.2.1 & Grid Repeat Layout 1.2.2) into two different sections and drop these two sections in the Dynamic Layout(Inline Grid Double)-1.2.
