Local action displays inline



On launching a local action using pega.u.d.processAction, the local action opens inline in the current section instead of as a modal dialog window.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. On the Button action set, configure an action with a runScript method.
  2. Invoke the pega.u.d.processAction API in that function

Root Cause

A custom script was written to launch the Process action API based on a parameter.


Perform the following local-change: 
  1. Invoke the Launch local action with a When condition instead of using a Run script.
  2. Add a hidden property in another section and refresh it (without formSubmit) before launching the local action.
