Error Messages

Not able to save the decision table.

Steps to Reproduce

1.Login to the application a decision table and checkout for editing.
3.before any dropdown list property we were required to put a dot to display whole dropdown list
4.while selecting a value from dropdown list dot (.) appears and unable to save.


1.Inorder to select a value from list,Press the down arrow,which would display the list of pages configured in Pages and classes tab.

2.Click on the page,which will display the "page name and  ." and in the drop down we can see the list of values.

3.double click on the required value,which would replace the input text field with the value only.

4.Since it is an input text field,'.'(DOT) is also considered as a value and it is not considered as an operator to get the references.
Hence the '.'(DOT) value is not trimmed even after selecting the required value,that makes the '.' to appear for ever and because of this,you were unable to save the Decision table.

5.Hence please use down arrow and followed by a double click  to get the Required value.

the issue where we cannot save a decision table with when field having pagename.value as value got fixed in ML 8
