When user tries to display the field value using dropdown, the values in the dropdown list are not displayed in sorted order.

Error Messages


Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a section and drag a property into the section. Set the particular field control to dropdown.

2. Configure activity as a source of the dropdown.
3. Call a method ‘Obj-sort’ in the last step of activity, so that the values in the result page passing as source to dropdown gets sorted.

Root Cause

User has used activity as a source of dropdown and called ‘Obj-Sort’ method in the activity to sort the values in the result page, passing as source to dropdown. While passing parameters to ‘Obj-Sort’ method, applies to class details of result page has been set to incorrect class name which causes the reported issue.


Setting class name of result page as ‘applies to class’ in the parameters passed to ‘Obj-Sort’ method, addresses this issue.
