2507511 - Field visibility using an onView rule does not switch immediately


Field visibility using an onView rule does not switch back to the initial view when the changes are made in the same session.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. When an 'onView" business is set on a field visibility as below:

  2. And when the field value is switched, the rule appears to be working fine:
    1. s2.JPG
  3. But when the field is switched back to another value in the same session, the behaviour doesn't seem to change dynamically:

  • This is by design of the product
  • The onView rules do not work dynamically in the same session


When onView rule hides a field onChange rule will not be able to make it visible again.
