HTML popups do not load from activity when run from link



The Run Activity action with Show-HTML method does not display a popup with HTML content.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a UI link control and call the activity from an on click event.
  2. Use Show-HTML related methods to display HTML rules in the activity.

Root Cause

This behavior is as per Pega product design. The Run Activity returns true or false values and not the stream.


Change the action to ‘Open URL in Window’ with the required activity for the HTML stream to display the HTML content.
