APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If you drop a coach view onto the palette that includes a date
    config option, but you do not visit the configuration property
    page before saving, no default value is set in the model for the
    config options. However if the configuration property page is
    just viewed and then saved, the default value is set and will
    display at run time. If a coach authoring user later decides to
    change a property, on the General tab for example, and then
    saves this change, the default value is set for the date config
    option and that value displays at run time.
