Error description

  • When assigning colors to enumerated string values if you use the
    ?amber? color (4th option between red and yellow) as a color for
    one of the values it does not display in the object/field.
    Instead the color is gray.
    
    The colors don?t seem to be honored on the grid view either.
    
    The OpenPages documentation does not mention this color as being
    an option for enumerated string values, yet it is available for
    selection.

    Prerequisites:
    
    OP 8.2
    NOTE:  For this example, we are going to use SOXProcess and the
    ?In Scope? field but you could use any object and field.
    
    1.	Log into OpenPages as the Administrator
    2.	Create a Task View
    a.	Click on the ?gear?/settings icon -> Solutions Configuration
    -> Views
    b.	Click the ?Add New? button
    c.	Check the ?use as default view for this object type for all
    profiles?
    d.	Object Type = Process
    e.	Name = Provide a name
    f.	Type = Task
    g.	Click ?Add?
    h.	Click ?Add Section? and provide a name, click ?Done?
    i.	Add fields ensuring you select the ?In Scope? (or the
    enumerated string field)
    j.	Assign colors to the enumerated string values
    k.	In the View Designer click on the enumerated string field
    name (In Scope)
    l.	Select colors for each of the values, ensuring one is the 4th
    option (amber, which is between red and yellow)
    m.	Click ?Done?
    n.	Click ?Publish?
    3.	Create an object record that has the enumerated string value
    selected for the ?amber? color
    a.	Select the menu -> Organization -> Processes
    b.	Click ?Add New?
    c.	Fill in the required fields, ensure that the ?In Scope? is
    set to the value which has the ?amber? color assigned (in this
    example ORM)
    d.	Save
    4.	Close all tabs
    
    Steps to Reproduce:
    
    1.	Log into OpenPages
    2.	Navigate to the Menu -> Organization -> Processes
    3.	Select the process created above
    4.	Note there is no color applied to the ?In Scope? value
