Question

Perform Harness with screen layout

We have customized the perform harness with screen layout (header, left and right Panes.) and center pane with the pycasecontainer, because of this change most of the components are not working like Save and Refresh actions, Submit button to finish assignments, and we found one more issue that file upload is not posting the file path to the requestor page.

if we use the default container for perform harness every thing works fine.

Please let me know if anyone have this issue  or suggest the work around.

PRPC Version : 7.1.7

Thanks

Praveen

Hi Praveen,

None of the UI Actions/Functions which require form tag will work for screen layout such as FileUpload, RefreshSection, Submitting Form.

This is because Screen Layouts don't have the form tag.

As per Pega recommendation: Screen layouts are for portal harnesses only. You should use a column layout within a harness container to format a non-portal harness that creates a form tag.

Hope this helps

Hi,

    Have you included updateClipboard js file under scripts and styles tab as shown in the below screen shot.

Hi Praveen,

          Sorry for the late response,

          I am sorry for the post about UpdateClipboard.js . This will not be available in the system, since UpdateClipboard js file was created by me in my system for some other purpose.

              

          I will try to replicate your scenario and get back to you, if there are any solution.

          Again sorry for the confusion.

Thanks,

Gowrishankar.

Hi Gowrishankar,

Thanks for the reply and please don't be sorry. I have given it a try with 7.1.5 and 7.1.7 and its the same behavior, for now i have changed the UI to mimic screen layout using column layout, but i am loosing the sliding behavior of the left and right panes.

if nothing works then i have to implement using some external frameworks(jqlayout) etc

Thanks

We have replaced the UI with columns layouts, at cost of loosing the drag feature. customer was ok for now. Thanks for the help

Wow, this stinks, because this would have been a half hour solution to the POC I was working on, instead I have to use columns or move the information elsewhere instead of providing the customer with an easy solution to get to the information they would like to see.

Any idea if anyone has provided collapsible behavior for the column layouts? I only ask because that would be an amazing feature.
