    javascript error when validation occurs.
    
    USER AFFECTED:
    Business Process Manager Advanced, Standard and Express using
    new Coaches
    
    PROBLEM DETAILED DESCRIPTION:
    Both the Select and Table control incorrectly used the
    javascript function indexOf on a native Array object which is
    not supported on IE8.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Both the Select and Table control incorrectly used the
    javascript function indexOf on a native Array object which is
    not supported on IE8. The Table control's issue would be exposed
    if the hidden columns configuration option is used and changes
    dynamic when the Coach is running.
