Special value not always selected in complex table agentry client


I have a screen with a field linked to a complex table. Based on rules (rule for index, rule for cascade parent), the complex table can be filtered when specific criteria are met. When these are not met, the complex table is not filtered at all.

This functionality works fine, but...

There is also a 'special value' defined which is shown as the default value of the drop down. This works fine when the complex table is NOT filtered; this special value is being shown in both the list of possible selection as well as the current value.

When the complex table IS filtered, the special value is available as possible value, but it is not the current value.

I have been looking for the reason, but can't find it. Who has a clue?

The version of Agentry client is 70.12.1, work manager 6.2.1 is the application.

Kind regards.

    Hi Mike,

    I believe that's expected behavior, when not filtered, the default is shown as current. When filtered, it is putting the default value is put into as possible value not as current value since the filter is applied. I hope this helps.

    If you need another behavior, Please talk to your account executives to open a open request.

    Hu Chung,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    The value of the underlying field is the same as the special value hence the drop down could show this. Doesnt the framework lookup the value of the underlying object in order to check whether it is also a value in the dropdown?

    Kind regards,
