Post value in the grid returns message "Returned no content"



When using a Click action to Post Value on a check box or button, a screen is received stating the below error message. 

Error Messages

Status : Good message : The operation completed successfully, but returned no content.

Steps to Reproduce

1. In a section rule, add a check box or a button.
2. Open the property window of the check box or button, in Actions tab, add a event as "Click" and add an action as "Post value".
3. At runtime, when you execute the section, by clicking check box or button, a confirmation message window appears.

Root Cause

Post value for work object grid is not supported. Editing work objects without acquiring a lock is not recommended. Post Value works for Data grids.
Post value is not supported only for work object bound grids. Work Object bound grids inherit from Work- or Assign- class.


1. Move the control (where the post value has been configured) to a separate section and configure an 'on change - refresh section' action on the control.
2. Embed that section in the column of the repeat grid.
