Value List Property cannot be referenced in Dropdown Control



Value List Property cannot be referenced in a dropdown control using Pega 8.1.1 with Sales Automation 8.
In the application, D_YesNo data page is configured to only display Yes and No with internal values true and false for selections.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a list data page D_YesNo sourced by a data transform.
  2. In the data transform, add more than one page in to pxResults.
  3. On each page in pxResults, fill the pyLabel and pyBooleanValue(1) properties.
  4. Create a section with a dropdown control and refer the data page as the source.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.
When a value list property was referred in the dropdown control, the dropdown displayed as empty. This was traced to a property of type value list or value group. Hence, the ClipboardProperty.getName() API returned as empty.


Install or upgrade  to the new release, Pega 8.1.4.
