I Created a grid layout and Inserted two columns. In the first column, we included a section A with an autocomplete field and a grid layout. In the second column, we included a section B with only an autocomplete field.
if we press the down key on the field of section A, we get no error. If we press the down key on the field of section B, we get an error
If we put section B in the first column and then section A in the second column, if we press the down key on the field of section B, the error is gone.
I think the problem is that when section B is after section A, the system is trying to find section B in the class of the property of the grid layout in section A which is different than the actual class.
I just tried to create a similar scenario at my end but i was unable to add section to the column of repeat grid. It would be better if you share the screen prints on how you have configured so that we can give a try.
1) Created a repeat grid with two columns with the report definition as backup:
2) Created Section1 with an Auto complete and the Repeat grid:
3) Created section2 with an Auto complete field :
Included Section 1 into the first column and section 2 to the second column of the repeat grid. Tried pressing the down key on the Auto complete field of Section 2 as mentioned by you but didn't face any error.
Please let me know what exactly the error you are facing.
we didn't get any specific error, but when we press on the down key we don't get the list that we are supposed to see.
If we put that section on the first column, we can see the list.
Also, I don't know if this is relevant or not, but the source of the grid layout that contains the two column is a Data page. And this data page is being loaded from an activity not a report definition.
