Multiple asterisks(*) for required fields in Accessibility view
User can see multiple asterisk(*) symbols for the required fields in the accessibility view in the grid layouts.
No error message , only multiple asterix(*) symbols
Steps to Reproduce
When user create a new work case , on the first screen there is a grid layout and for the required field, instead on just one asterisk(*) there are many asterisks.
The root cause of this problem is a backwards compatibility and it is a defect in Pegasystem's code/rules.
There are 2 issues when using a repeat grid with required fields in accessibility mode:
1. 3 asterisks instead of one. The problem was with workform_accessibility.css. This was resolved by changing the background image url to "transparent".
2. "REQUIRED" text was missing. This issue was not due to compatibility mode and is noticed only in IE8 Standards mode also, which is even thouse not recommended it is officially supported by Pega 7. To fix this issue need to add an accessibility check to generate the span (containing REQUIRED text) in the html stream.
In the layout add below note in a sections in accessibility view.
"Note: Fields marked with Asterisk(*) symbol are required fields."
This issue is scheduled to be resolved in the release Pega 7.1.7.
