Multi select list control is disabled in tabbed Repeat Layout



Unable to enter data in a multi-select list control configured in a tabbed repeat layout. The input field of the control is disabled.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Add a tabbed repeat layout with source as Page group property.
  2. Add an embedded section.


Since Pega 7.3, all the feature work is performed only for the Template enabled mode. Multi select works only in the Template mode.
In this configuration, layouts such as tab group and tabbed repeat layouts are used. These layouts are not in the template mode. Hence, multi select is not generated.


Perform the following local-change:
  1. Change Tab group to Layout group.
  2. Change Tabbed repeat layout to Dynamic layout group.
The above changes distort the UI because the layout group does not support left tab orientation.
This behavior is currently not supported and is scheduled to be supported in a future Pega release.
