Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • Highlighting of Coach controls that have validation errors fails
    on IE8 due to CSS3 selector used by several CSS rules.
    
    USER AFFECTED:
    Business Process Manager Advanced, Standard and Express using
    new Coaches
    
    PROBLEM DETAILED DESCRIPTION:
    Several of the CSS rules used to handle the highlighting of
    validation errors for Coach controls mistakenly used the CSS3
    selector ":not(selector)" which is not supported on IE8. This
    resulted in the controls not being highlighted and an
    inconsistency between our supported browsers.
    

Problem conclusion

  • We have removed usage of the ":not(selector)" the from the CSS
    rules and introduced an additional CSS rule to provide the
    correct highlighting of validation errors for Coach controls
    while providing a consistent look across our supported browsers.
    
    FIX AVAILABILITY:
    Fix for 8.0.1 is avaialable as part of cumulative Coaches
    toolkit fix for APAR JR47156. More info at
