Unable to open expression builder
When using the online exercise system, the expression builder never opens for me. Although so far I have not had to use this feature, it would be nice to play around with it while I am doing the course.
For example, I wanted to try to use a boolean expression in a decision shape to make a step conditional on a parameter from a data page (instead of using a when condition via the "configure step behaviours" dialog). Unfortunately, without the expression builder it is next to impossible to know if the expression I am writing is syntactically correct and I have no idea what it is actually trying to evaluate.

The pega environment is the online exercise system (I've included the system information below).
I have tried in both Internet Explorer 11.0.17 and Chrome (41.0.2272.101 m). Popups are not being blocked as far as I can tell. Nor does it seem to be caused by an antivirus program. I managed to get the expression builder to show up for "when" rules if I choose "[expression evaluates to true]". But I cannot open it anywhere else.
Since I found at least one method to use the expression builder, I can use that method and cut-and-paste the function into the location of interest. So, it's at least I have a workaround now.

This isn't anything you are, or are not, doing. The Expression Builder was redesigned for Pega 7 and is not yet available in all places. The good news is it works beautifully in the decision shape in 7.1.7.
Eddie, Thank you and no worries. I read the example as an example and thougtht he was at other places where the expression builder should be opening. It doesn't work there, however it is still working in many other places in he 7 version. Thanks
