A property reference in a Field Value rule doesn't display value



When a field value is used to with an embedded property reference in the Localised Label text, at runtime the property reference is displayed rather then the value.
This issue is specifically when used in a radio button and dropdown control.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Create a section with Radio button control with the list source set as 'As defined on property' which the property has one or more Field Values defined. In the Field Value, reference a property on the clipboard using the syntax {.propertyreference}

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules While Using Dropdown/radiobutton and if we give datasource set "As defined on the property " ,and if we use table type as fieldvalue list there, it only get all the field values and those will be localized but it won't support if field values contains property reference. Its not a supported feature .


An enhancement request(FDBK-14204) has been created for consideration by Pega Product Management.
