TD-23473: VisListFindString always returns 0 when used on dropdown column

Post by Igor Ivanovic » 12 Apr 2017, 07:49

I created a ticket yesterday for this one.
It seems that it was already reported and it had a workaround using SalListSelectString, which isn't working if the list isn't sorted.
I opened a ticket for that one also, hasn't received a TD bug number yet.

MY SUGGESTION: Attach the test case, if there is one, to a msg. thread like this one for anyone who submits a bug to O/T and you let us know about the TD-xxx bug number + description.

Thanks for letting us know about this, Igor, but I'm wondering if such an 'open ticket' msg. might be better with a test case? That might help users here better understand the issue, perhaps help them come up with or -- in this case -- verify that while SalListSelectString was recommended, it only works under a certain circumstance? (I find it interesting that the workaround requires a sorting of the list. Odd...)

Just a thought..., and thanks again.

You are right. At first, I was thinking to attach it, but for some reason didn't... :oops:

Here it is.
