Error shown on updating the controls by "Update button"



An error is thrown while updating the deprecated control (Dynamic Select) using the "Update Control" button in a section.

Error Messages

Display format for the value of the cell: pxDropDown does not exist for use by this record (Validate).

Steps to Reproduce

Open any section. Click on "Update Control" button.

Root Cause

The application rulesets are pointing to the older versions of PegaRules. Hence while trying to save, the new rules are unavailable which causes this issue.


Recommended to update application rulesets to point to the latest version of Pega. There were a number of rulesets and manually changing each of them was not possible and hence added Pega-ProcessCommander:07-10-99 to the latest open rulesets where development is being done.
After doing this update controls were working properly.
