Unable To Process Event: No Target Found Message After Clicking On Custom Toolbar Button (Doc ID 2269902.1)

Last updated on JULY 06, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Sites - Version 12.2.1.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A custom toolbar button works only on the first tab.  Clicking the button on any other tab produces the message "Unable to process event: no target found message".

Following the 12c documentation:

Oracle WebCenter Sites 12.2.1.2.0
Fusion Middleware Developing with Oracle WebCenter Sites
72.2 Customizing the Toolbar
     http://docs.oracle.com/middleware/12212/wcs/develop/GUID-B6A2D322-A663-43D7-B770-5BF382C9F14C.htm#WBCSD6300

72.2.1 About Toolbar Customization

     config.toolbars = {
          "viewAlias": [action_1, action_2, …],
          or:
          "viewAlias": {
               "view_mode_1": [action_1, action_2, …],
               "view_mode_2": [action_1, action_2, …]
          }
          …
     }

 

When adding a custom toolbar button using the documented examples, the button only functions on the first tab.

This issue affects WebCenter Sites version 12.2.1.2.170415 (12.2.1.2 Patch2)
