Section changes to read-only when in Dynamic Layout Group



Embedded section within a Dynamic Layout Group (DLG) changes to read-only.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a section (Section A) with a repeat grid (edit mode:Inline- Click Row to edit).
  2. Include Section A in another section (Section B).
  3. Include Section B in a Dynamic Layout Group (tab). Section A fields change to read only even though the edit mode is Auto.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.

The issue occurred because,
  1. The controls that were present in the second level nesting onwards did not obey a section read-only value in the DLG.
  2. The When rule that governed the disabledwhen of the link was not resolved for all sections in the section include in the DLG.


Perform the following local-change: 

Use the When rule in the link that is utilized in the section read-only condition instead of using the pxIsEditable flag.
