Issue when multiple survey questions use the same property



After upgrading to Pega 7, display issues occur when multiple questions use the same property.  The question is configured to display the answer using a radio button.  If the user clears the radio button, they are unable to select the radio button again.  The selection is not retained.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Run the process to start the survey.
  2. Select Yes for question 1, which then displays question 3.
  3. Select No for question 3, which then displays question 4 with the radio button selected.
  4. Clear the radio button by clicking the Clear Selection button.
  5. Change the prior question answer to Yes and then back to No. The radio button for question 4 is not automatically selected.
  6. Click on the radio button to select but the selection is not retained.

Root Cause

The root cause of this issue is multiple questions are referencing the same property and the Refresh option was selected for those questions.  When the user tried to select the radio button it was refreshing and resetting the value based on the previous question associated with that property.


Uncheck the Refresh option for the question.
