Set Focus moving the cursor to the beginning of text



Set Focus action on a text input is moving the cursor to the beginning of text with Pega 7.1.8.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

1) In a text input enter some text with refresh section.
2) Action on the text input should change the values in the dropdown.
3) In drop down have an action to set focus back to the text input.

After the set focus, the cursor will be at the beginning and not at the ending of the text entered into the text input.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules.

User is configuring setValue on each key press which is causing focus to be shifted to property bounded control and refreshing whole section on refresh.

Usecase is to show results in grid on each key press. 



Perform the following local-change:

un activity on each key press and refresh the grid specific section.
Note: It is not required to do setValue on each key press when setting default value and that values is not changing.
