iView custom property values go away after Save

I have an iView with a predefined list of values to choose from. For example:

portalapp.xml:

<property name="color" value="red">

<property name="type" value="select[red,blue,green]"/>

</property>

When the iView is initially created, I can see the drop-down list with these values. When I select one, then save the iView, the drop-down list disappears (along with all of the predefined values). I can then go back in and put any text in the property and save it, which is obviously undesirable.

Is there a way to prevent this (such that the original list of values is preserved)? This only appears to be a problem with properties I have defined in the XML file. The system properties (that have a list of values) seem to not have this problem.

Thanks,

John Schimmels

    Hi John,

    I cannot see anything wrong there.

    Try adding:

    <property name="personalization" value="dialog"/>
    

    after the type property.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards

    Francisco

      Thanks for your response. The XML I posted was just an example of the actual one, just to get the point across. I should have posted the actual XML, which did use the "personalization" property:

      <property name="bgColor" value="FFFFFF">

      <property name="personalization" value="dialog"/>

      <property name="type" value="select[FFFFFF,F6F6F6,EEEEEE]"/>

      <property name="plainDescription" value="Background Color"/>

      <property name="inheritance" value="non-final"/>

      <property name="category" value="Custom"/>

      </property>

      Thanks,

      John

    Hi John,

    at least this is not reproducable on EP6 SP2 P27.

    Your version?

    • Hi John,

      I also took over your values on EP6 SP2 P27, everything works fine.

      It's a straight evaluation: Bug within your Portal. Patch 3 is really really old, so just address this issue to your portal admin(s).

      Best regards
