Last updated on AUGUST 26, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.6.6 to 11.1.1.8.4 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


Radio buttons or Check boxes do not behave properly when using a Back button from a WSRP Portlet to move between portlet screens.
If a value is selected on the Radio Buttons or Check Boxes and then move forward and back again using the Back button in the portlet, the value of the Radio Buttons or Check Boxes can no longer be changed.

This issue happens only when using Internet Explorer 8 or 9 (IE8 IE9).
Using Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer 10 it works fine.


Clicking the Back button in the Portlet shows the following JavaScript errors:

Object Expected
adfportlet Line: 192
Code:0 Char:1
URL: https://server/portal/adfportlet?_adfp_request_id=...

 

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

Expected to be able to change the Radio buttons or Check Boxes values when using the Back button in the portlet.

 

STEPS

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps using Internet Explorer 8 or 9:

  1. Create a WSRP Portlet with some screens and navigation buttons to move Next or Back.
     
  2. Add some Radio Buttons or Check Boxes to some of the screens in the Portlet.
     
  3. Add some Next and Back buttons to move between screens in the Portlet.
     
  4. Run the Portlet and enter some values in the Radio Buttons or Check Boxes.
     
  5. Move to the next screen in the Portlet.
     
  6. Then move back using the Back button in the Portlet.
     
    The value can no longer be changed for the Radio Buttons or Check Boxes.
    Values will be reset to default or the value that was specified before moving to the next screen.
     
    If the Radio Buttons or Check Boxes values were mandatory there will also be issues moving to the next screen in the Portlet.
