Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules.

The user has configured a  Cascading Dynamic Select and opening them in a read-only mode. The values are not getting populated in the Chrome or Safari browser but working fine in IE 


This issue is resolved through adding the following local change at the bottom of the section where the issue is present:

pega.ui.DynamicSelect.prototype.DS_loadTargets= function(strValue, ignoreIfAuto)
                if (strValue != "" && strValue != null)
                                var objTargetSelect = this._DSSelectElement.DSTarget;
                                if (objTargetSelect == null ) //|| objTargetSelect.length == 0
                                for (var i = 0; i < objTargetSelect.length; i++)
                                                var strUniqueID = objTargetSelect[i].getAttribute("uniqueID");
                                                var dsObj = pega.ui.DSUtils_globals.htds.get(strUniqueID)
                                                if (ignoreIfAuto && dsObj.DS_getLoadMode() == LOADMODE_AUTO)
                                                                //do nothing for now
                                                                pega.ui.DSUtils.log(dsObj.getID() + ": called as a target. value = " + this._DS_Default);
                                                                if (dsObj._DS_dDisabled != true) {
                                                                                                dsObj.loadElement(pega.ui.DSUtils.escapeString(strValue), false);
