I am on ClearQuest 7.1.2.08 on a Windows Server. This issue occurs on the Web Client and with only IE7 and IE8. However, it does not seem to be an issue with Chrome or FireFox, nor the thick client. On one of my record forms, I have a couple of Static Text controls that are associated to a record field. However, when this field is (null) in the database, the word "null" is displayed on the web form. It also displays 'null' when the field value in the database is "" (blank) or " " (space) - it appears to trim spaces, but it is not actually null in the database, but it still displays "null" on the web form. When the field is populated with text, it works fine, but the displayed "null" is a nuisance.
As I stated earlier, this only occurs with IE7 and IE8. Another strange thing is that it doesn't occur in my test and development environments.
Has anyone else come across this? I have a PMR open with IBM, but I'm just checking to see if anyone has seen this behavior and if there is a solution or workaround. I could use ".", but it seems like a "hokey" workaround.
Could it be a configuration setting on CM Server?

Re: Issue with Static Text control on Web Form2013-03-29T12:00:43Z in response to SystemAdminThanks Iman,
I did submit a PMR - which will probably require a patch to fix. I landed up just initializing the field value to "...", instead of "" (blank) to workaround the issue. Although it's not the most elegant solution, it's better than having the word "null" displayed.
