No longer possible to enter expressions directly into some properties of WAMs

Abstract: When entering an evaluation expression use the XPATH Expression area
Submitted By: LANSA Technical Support


In SP4, the XSL Editor was integrated into the IDE, and as a result there have been some subtle differences in the way that you work with WAMs and Weblets. One such change is the fact that many properties that provide a drop-down list of valid values (such as boolean properties, input type, display mode, etc.) will no longer allow typing directly into the property value area. This was done to avoid runtime problems if invalid values were accidentally put into these properties.

This means that field names (#MYFIELD), boolean expressions (#MYFIELD = '10') and other XPath expressions cannot be entered directly into the property value as previous release.


To enter an evaluation expression, please use the XPath Expression area, which is located below the properties area.
