Grid inside grid is not working in IE but in Chrome



Repeating grid layout has an embedded section.

This section, embeds two section ( say Sec1 and Sec2 ) and Sec1 has few properties and Defer load selected.
Also the Sec2 has a repeating grid layout ( No Defer load ).

At runtime, when user adds an item to the main grid, nothing appears on the grid, and it says "Loading..".

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a Repeating Grid Layout. Embed a section( MainSec ) in the repeating grid layout.

2. Embed two sections ( Sec 1 ) and ( Sec2 ) in Mainsec, enable Defer Load option for Sec1.

3. Add a repeating grid layout in Sec2.

4. Run the use case at runtime, click "Add Item " with the below screen:

Root Cause

There is a design limitation of using a grid inside a grid.

There are a number of issues of this configuration, for example, pagination, filtering might not work as expected.

Note : Even after removing defer load from Sec1, only Sec1 would be visible at runtime, the inner grid would still not be displayed.


Note: This case has been raised as an enhancement FDBK-23581.

As a local-change, one might perform the below configurations changes to get passed this behavior:

1. Replace the outer grid with repeating dynamic layout.
2. On click of "Add item " icon, call Refresh section action, configure a preloading activity in the refresh section step that would add the page to the pagelist.

Sample activity steps:
  1. Create a new page.
  2. Add a Java step that does the following:
ClipboardProperty pageList = tools.getProperty(".ABC");
ClipboardPage newPage = tools.createPage("ABC Class");
