Refresh when condition is not working



On the Perform harness the user has configured a section with a when condition to refresh the section and enable the Submit button whenever a new Attachment is added to the Work Object. A refresh When condition is added when the result count of the attachments pagelist change, but this condition is not triggered and the section is not refreshed.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Add a attachment to the workobject and see that the section is not getting refreshed.

Root Cause

When an attachment is added, "AllAttachments" page is deleted and recreated. Due to this all the expressions bind to this page donot work. Deletion is happening in "Work-pzGetAttachment" activity, first step.


Work around:
Save-as "Work-. pyWorkAttachments" section to application ruleset and add a non-auto geenrated section(in @baseclass) with below code:


if(tools.findPage("Temp") == null) {
tools.createPage("@baseclass", "Temp");

if(tools.findPage("AllAttachments") != null) {
tools.findPage("Temp").getProperty("pyLabel").setValue(tools.findPage("AllAttachments").getProperty("pxResultCount") + "");


Now on the section where refresh is required, have refresh condition as "Temp.pyLabel Changes".
