Error description

  • Configuration:
    --------------
    Tool = Rational System Architect / XT
    Version = 11.4.2
    
    Description:
    ------------
    SA/XT definition editor sometimes freezes when selecting
    'Choices' while creating a new definition with a LISTOF 'xxx'
    REQUIRED property
    
    Steps to Reproduce:
    -------------------
    1. Add the USRPROPS below into a SA/XT enabled encyclopedia
    
    RENAME DEFINITION 'User 1' TO 'A'
    RENAME DEFINITION 'User 2' TO 'B'
    
    DEFINITION 'A'
    {
      PROPERTY 'my Bs' {EDIT LISTOF 'B' REQUIRED LENGTH 1200}
    }
    
    2. Open the encyclopedia in SA in order to make it possible to
    open in SA/XT
    3. Create a couple of definition of type 'B'
    4. Open the encyclopedia in SA/XT as Updater
    5. Create a new definition of Type 'A'
    6. Press the 'Choices' button
    
    ==? SA/XT can not save this definition since all relevant
    buttons are greyed out
    
    Workaround:
    ---------------
    Once the user has picked Select from the Choices region, the
    buttons disable and won't re-enable. The user has to close the
    'Add definition' page and start over.
    This will work:
    1) Enter name for new definition
    2) Press Choices
    3) Manually enter names for items to be added and press Add for
    each
    4) Select a value in the list (otherwise a message appears on
    pressing OK to say that not all properties have values)
    Alternatives are:
    -Enter some text in the Add entry box
    -Fiddle with the sequence of the items in the list as this adds
    5) Press OK
