Unable to edit value list property in data table editor on IE11



A data class shown under 'Data Tables' landing page has a value list property. When user edits the value list property on IE11 using Data Table editor, it fails due to a JavaScript error. The same works fine in earlier versions of IE.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Add a new data table with a value list property. 
2. Edit the data table instance and modify the value list property. 
3. Observe that you are unable to modify existing value list entries on an instance on IE11. 
4. The same use case when tested on IE9 works fine. 

Root Cause

The issue is due to a JavaScript error "object is undefined" in IE11. The error is generated from "StringListItems_change" function of "StringList.js" file in the following line: 

var ScratchPadDOC = document.getElementById("ScratchPad").contentWindow.document; 
  • In IE11 document.getElementById("ScratchPad") comes as un-defined 
  • In IE9 document.getElementById("ScratchPad") represents an object


HFix-21243 resolves the issue.
