Hi all,

Thanks for spending your valuable time...

I have an issue in the ItemChanged Event. 

Consider that I have a dropdown data window having id & genname in the list. The data type of id is numeric and genname is  string. The data column & display column are assigned as id & genname respectively. While running from source code ItemChanged event gives me the id value as data but after deployment ItemChanged event gives genname as data.

While debugging I found the reason; some of the data in the dropdown gives the genname as data all other data gives id as data. Actually, the wrong data (genname as data) given by the ItemChanged event because of the First character of genname is space. ie... if the first character of genname is space the ItemChanged event gives genname as data.

I have resolved the issue by replacing that space from my dataset.

is anybody had such experience?  anyone have any workaround regarding this issue...

Hi Francis;

  Yes, spaces and many special characters are not allowed to be used in both DWO and PB entity names (see PB Help).
