Unable to add a Chart to Section



Adding a chart (pxChart) control to a section fails with a validation error on the "Column spacing" setting; when the operator is configured to use a locale that inturn uses a comma decimal seperator.

Error Messages

0.1 is not a valid decimal value

Steps to Reproduce

1. Login as an Operator with a locale set to 'ru', or another locale that uses a comma decimal seperator.
2. Add a chart control to a section and select 10% as the column spacing on the presentation tab.
3. Submit the dialog.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.


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

To save the chart prior to this update, the chart can be saved by using an operator with the locale set to one that uses a decimal seperator (en_GB for example).
