Page Message does not display while opening a screen



Unable to see page messages on a section as it renders. Page-Messages are set in the pre-activity of flow action but the Page-Messages do not display on screen. However, the Page-Messages are present on pyWorkPage.

Steps to Reproduce

On an assignment shape, add a activity on pre action and set Page-Set message so that it displays on UI while opening the assignment.

Root Cause

This is an expected behavior. Error marker is loaded only on reload of the section. Hence, the Page-Set messages that are set in the pre-activity will be visible only after the section is reloaded or after a flow action is submitted.


Use Property-Set messages in pre-activity and Page-Set messages in post processing activity.
