Error Messages

Not applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a Text property , UI control as dropdown.
2. Configure the property to have promptlist as shown above.
3. Choose "M" from the list and submit the screen.

Root Cause

This is expected behavior.

When the flag "Display Only (Not For Validation)" is not checked in property rule form, and when the property data is submitted to prpc sever,  given user value is set on clipboard page, then validation is triggered on property value to check if the the user input value is in the properties prompt list or not.

During this validation, all the standard values (in the order given in property rule form) are matched case insensitively with given user input , as 'm' is before 'M' , 'm' is being set even when user enters M. 


Perform the following two local-changes:

1.Select the 'Display only(Not for Validation)" check box. 
2.Change the standard values to have 'm1' and 'M' instead of ' m ' and 'M'.
