Embedded repeating grid appears in read only mode after refresh



After a refresh section is invoked, embedded repeat grids become read-only. (In fact, everything in the embedded section becomes read-only.)

Error Messages

Not applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Refresh a section which contains a FilePath control, and an embedded section with editable fields.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.

This issue occurs in the presence of a FilePath control.


This issue is scheduled to be addressed in release Pega 7.2.2.

A local change is currently available until that time.

Create a custom non-auto generated control with the following script:

if(tools.hasInputEnabled()) { 
tools.putParamValue("ReadOnly", ""); 


Then place this custom control on the parent section that is being refreshed.
