Format Problem "&" --> "&amp;"
I have created a Radio button with several choices like "New & Additional Contract". The Radio Button is sourced by a Property which contains a prompt list. The prompt list has entries like Standard Value: S01 Prompt Value S01 ....
Prompt Value S01 is a field value rule. So Field Value S01 contains the string "New & Additional Contract".
Now if i starting the Portal the "&" sign of the string will be shown as "&"! It is curious because it works if i use a Label field instead of a Radio button. So my question is it not possible to use symbols within field values?
The Hotfix-22332 is for field values containing double quotes. Exact scenario is "When field values that contain quotes are used with controls like Radio buttons, checkbox and dropdown then these controls show encoded values of quotes."
I have tried the above mentioned design at my end. I am able to observe the same behavior at my end.
On running the usecase:
I will investigate the behavior at my end and will get back to you with more updates.
I have checked the behavior after installing the hotfix. The hotfix-22332 will help solve the behavior. There is an additional instruction that needs to be followed. After installing the hotfix, if the Field Values already contain encoded values then manually replace them with & and Resave the field values.
