Is there a defect for applying a disable privilege to a link control in PRPC 7.1.9?

After applying a privilege to a link control to disable it for certain users, the link is disabled at all times, regardless of whether the user holds the privilege or not. After looking in the product help, there is no mention of this field. Is this a product defect? There is a workaround to use the function to check for a privilege in a when rule, in the disable field, however.

We are using PRPC 7.1.9.


This is all there is for General Properties in Help:

3. Complete the Cell Properties panel— General tab

Complete the General tab.




Optional. Select to determine when the link appears.

  • Choose Always to have the link appear or be hidden based on the visibility of the enclosing section or flow action when the form is first presented or is refreshed. This condition is checked only once.
  • Choose Other Condition to make the visibility depend on a when condition rule or a Java expression..
Condition If you selected Other Condition for the Visible field, complete this field.
  • The When Name key part of a when condition rule. Click(magnifying glass) to review or create the rule.
  • Simple expression based on the comparison of a pair of constants, properties, or both, combined by Boolean operators, such as .Color="Red". You can combine the expression with a when condition rule or another expression using the && and || operators.

As a best practice, use the Condition Builder to edit this field. Click ( ) to open the tool. See Using the Condition Builder to configure dynamic UI actions.

An link that is not visible is also disabled and cannot be clicked.

Run on Client?

Appears when you enter a simple expression in the Condition field. Select to cause evaluation and execution of the condition each time the value of a property stated in the condition changes. If unselected, the expression is evaluated and the condition executed when the form is initially presented and whenever the form is refreshed.
