Select button on Date and dropdown control with accessibility



When accessibility is enabled and an onChange event (like post value) is configured on a menu or date field, Select button appears to the right of these controls. Every Select button states select and cannot be customized.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Turn on accessibility, make sure to use PegaWAI rulesets in application.
  2. Interact with a menu or date control with an onChange configured.

Root Cause

The select button is introduced in accessible use cases to prevent inadvertent dropdown selections, which can trigger unintentional post values from firing constantly as accessible users arrow through the dropdown options. The select button posts the value once users are ready with their selections. The request to customize the select label is an enhancement to the product.


Apply HFix-31416 (7.2)
Apply HFix-36134 (7.2.2)

It delivers the enhancement to allow for custom labels to help guide users the intention of the button. pxDropdown and pxDateTime controls now have an option to customize the Select label of the button. This will only apply for accessible operators and when onChange events are configured on them.
