Multi-Select list values do not display in the read-only mode



Unable to view read-only data on screen for Multi-Select list control.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. In a section, include a field with a Multi-Select list control in the editable mode.
  2. In the next flow action section, refer the same field with the same control and property in the read-only mode.
  3. At runtime, on the first screen, select a few values in this field.
  4. Submit the assignment. On the next screen, the selected values do not display in the read-only field though the values are present on the Clipboard.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.


Perform the following local-change:

In a multi-select list field, 'Data source property' and 'Property' fields are present in the 'Search results configuration'. In this multi-select list field (for both editable and read-only), use the same property in both 'Data source property' and 'Property'.

Alternatively, update to Pega 8.1.5.
