Param value as Autcomplete property



Creating a reusable "build a list" type parameterized section.
When setting the property for the Autocomplete a Java error is thrown when referencing the param value - despite the property panel indicating that it is allowable and valid.

Error Messages

Null pointer exception - pzAssemblePrepocess

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a section.
  2. Set parameters on section for:
  • AutcompleteProperty
  • DataSource
  • DataSourceValueToDisplay

3. Put Autocomplete in layout in section and set values for source and property. Both allow selecting param values. Source of list seems fine. Property for autocomplete throws and error.

Root Cause

A software use or operation error.
