Save Draft and Currency Field



Save Draft button when pressed causes a screen error for currency fields, identifying that they are not the proper "decimal value". This inhibits use of input formatting and draft mode saving simultaneously. It is important to note that submitting the page normally works as intended. The flow progresses. Save draft is the only feature that appears to be impacted.

Error Messages

$xxx is not a valid decimal value

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a property of type decimal 
2. Include it in a section 
3. In the control's property's Presentation tab, change the symbol to Currency, and check "Display value using read-only formatting" option 
4. During runtime, add a numeric value in this field 
5. Click on OOTB "Save Draft" button 
Observe "$xxx is not a valid decimal value" error

Root Cause

It's needed to override submitWhenFail API in UserWorkForm HTML Fragment.


This issue is scheduled to be resolved in update release Pega 7.1.8.
