Spell Check ICON is not working.



Spell Check ICON is not working. Issue is in 7.1.7 This issue is not there in PRPC 5.5 SP1. Issue came up when code was moved from 5.5 to 7.1 VS.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open any portal in Pega7.1.7.
  2. Provide any incorrect text in Text Area and click on th Spell Check Icon.
  3. Use ActionSection in the perform harness

Root Cause

The root cause of the issue is customer was using text area inside a action section.
Spellcheck action always performs on text area or RTE elements, which are in current document (current Iframe) only. Action section in perform harness does not render the element like that.


The below local change will resolve the issue.

Using pyActionArea section to handle flow actions instead of “Action” section resolves the issue.
