Property value does not display on the Clipboard



Post submission of a modal flow to update a property, the property value does not display on the Clipboard or in controls that reference it.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a configuration with two tabs.
  2. On the first tab, configure a repeating grid sourced from a page list.
  3. Set up a modal flow to add rows to the grid by adding entries to the page list.
  4. Configure a data transform to set a property in the modal flow.
  5. On the second tab, configure a text input control to reference the property set by the data transform.
  6. Execute the process at runtime.
  7. Review the Clipboard and the second tab after submitting the modal flow.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules.
The value was overwritten when the screen was refreshed. This occurred when a blank value from the text input control was posted.


Perform the following local-change to refresh the screen without submitting the blank value:

Add an explicit refresh action to the section that contains the text input control and uses 'Disable submit on refresh'.  Perform this after the 'Flow in Modal Dialog' action for the grid.
