Visibility condition on layout not honored



A dynamic layout on a section of the application should only show up if one of the check-boxes in the section is selected.

On the first screen where the section is displayed, the visibility condition is honored; however, in the subsequent screens where the same section is displayed, the visibillity condition is not honored. The dynamic layout shows up even though the check-box is not selected.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure a dynamic layout on a section  that should only show up if one of the check-boxes in the section is selected.
  2. Test this on first screen with check-box checked.
  3. Test this on subsequent screens with the same section but the check-box unchecked on load. 

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules: while finishing one assignment and moving on to next assignment, for the initial screen rendering Document Object Model (DOM) elements are considered. This is causing inconsistent behaviour while evaluating expressions on the subsequent screens.
