Error description

  • Simple scenario,
    
    The initial values for both Text and Select are 2. Then click
    update button, Text is updated to 0 successfully, but Select is
    not updated. Both Text and Select are binded to the same
    NameValuePair
    
    Solution,
    
    To overcome this issue, user can copy the Stock Select Control
    from Coaches toolkit, into their Process app or Toolkit, and
    make the following modifications,
    
    1) add following code to the end of load event handler:
    
     if(this.context.options.selectedItem &&
    !lang.isString(this.context.options.selectedItem.get("value")))
    {
      this.selectedItemBindAllHandler =
    this.context.options.selectedItem.get("value").bindAll(this.chan
    ge, this);
     }
    
    2) add following code to unload event handler (don't matter
    where to insert):
    
    if(this.selectedItemBindAllHandler) {
     this.selectedItemBindAllHandler.unbind();
     this.selectedItemBindAllHandler = null;
    }
    
    3) add following code to end of change event handler, right
    before the last line (last line is: this.view(); ):
    
    if(event.type == "config" && event.property == "selectedItem") {
     if(this.selectedItemBindAllHandler) {
      this.selectedItemBindAllHandler.unbind();
      this.selectedItemBindAllHandler = null;
     }
     if(this.context.options.selectedItem &&
    !lang.isString(this.context.options.selectedItem.get("value")))
    {
      this.selectedItemBindAllHandler =
    this.context.options.selectedItem.get("value").bindAll(this.chan
    ge, this);
     }
    }
    
    In addition to the above, find this line in load event handler
     newSelection = {};
    
    Replace above line with following block of code:
    -----------------------
           if(this.context.binding &&
    this.context.binding.get("value")
    && this.context.binding.get("value") instanceof
    com.ibm.bpm.coach.List) {
            newSelection =
    this.context.binding.get("value").createListElement();
           } else {
            newSelection = {};
           }
    -----------------------
    
    The above will be implemented as a fix in the Coaches stock
    Select control.
