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.
