Date Picker not Opening in Tile Applet (Doc ID 2051297.1)

Last updated on MARCH 02, 2017

Applies to:

Siebel CRM - Version 8.1.1.14.6 [IP2014] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On :  8.1.1.14.6 [IP2014] version, Client Functionality

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR  
---------------
We have rendered an edit list applet in tile mode in Open UI and are trying to open the date picker on the date field. Each time the date picker is opened, an error message is seen in the browser developer tools stating:
"Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'GetUIType' of undefined"

The same error message was found when trying to open the date picker in sample installation. Even it was seen that the date picker icon on the date field is hidden for tile mode in sample installation. We removed the hidden property from the date picker to open it. Also the error message appears only when there are multiple records on the applet. In case there is only single record, no error message is encountered.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Editing date field should be possible in tile applet.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Open a view with applet in tile mode.
2. Unhide the date picker icon for a date field.
3. Click on the date picker icon.
