Parameter getting trimmed when we pass HTML property as source.
String parameter value is getting trimmed incase the parameter value starts with 0 when sourced as an html property from a function alias for a function.
Ex : Funtion1 is called from Funtion1Alias. Function1 has a String input parameter which is sourced as a HTML property from the alias. The parameter values from the control are in the format 01,02 etc. When the alias is referred in a decision tree and we choose 01, it is trimming 0 and displaying 1 on UI.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
Step 1: Create a HTML control to append the values as 01,02,03 etc.
Step 2: Create a property to include the above as UI control.
Step 3 : Create a function with a input parameter of type String and to set the parameter value to a property on workpage to show on UI.
Step 4 : Create a function alias to call the above function and source the parameter as the above property created in step 2.
Step 5: Use the function alias in the decision tree and select a parameter value and save.
Step 6: Check the value of the property set in the function in step 3 on UI. It is trimming the 0.

01 and 1 is numerically equivalent, so it should not affect your calculations. However if you need to explicitly display and maintain the preceding digit for other string manipulations then maybe defaulting this property type to a string might make more sense for you.
