  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Customer is using Master Page in RPE and finds difficulties with
    updating the variables defined in the Master Page, in the
    template.
    
    He feels that the documentation on Master page could be better.
    
    A very brief description of how MPs work in RPE:
    
    - you cannot use queries or data attributes in MPs
    - if data is needed in MPs you need to put it through variables
    - the MP content ( the content of header/footer) is evaluated
    only once when the MP is applied. Changing the value of the
    variable after the MP is applied will not have an effect on the
    MP content
