PO07412, WorkItem:246068 - It's not possible to turn off the progress spinner by using the property that controls whether it's enabled or disabled


Issue Description:


The property curam.progress.widget.enabled, which determines whether the progress spinner is displayed or not, does not work. Even when it is set to false, the progress spinner continues to display.


User Interface Impact: No


Steps to Reproduce (In Development):


  1. Update setting curam.progress.widget.enabled=false.
  2. Rebuild the client.
  3. Restart the server.
  4. Issue: Pages that are slow to load continue to display the progress spinner.




This has been resolved in the JavaScript responsible for rendering the progress spinner so that even pages that take a long time to load will not display it if it has been disabled.




PO08232, WorkItem:252306 - Usage of the '#' character in Microsoft Word template data details causes the resultant Microsoft Word document to display incorrectly


Issue Description:


Microsoft Word communications in the Social Program Management application are based on a template that is created and maintained in Microsoft Word. All Microsoft Word templates are associated with either participants or with cases.


When communication of type Microsoft Word is created in the application and the data used as input into the template fields contains a '#' character, the resultant Microsoft Word document generated fails to display correctly. All of the data in the fields up to where the '#' character is included displays correctly, but the other template fields display the error message 'Error - no data retrieved' instead of the field values, and the data specified after the '#' character is not included in the resultant generated Microsoft Word document.


User Interface Impact: No


Steps to Reproduce:


  1. Login as a caseworker.
  2. Click on Register Person and Create Case under Cases in the shortcuts panel.
  3. Enter the Person details and select any case from the Type drop-down.
  4. On the newly created case, click on the Contact tab and select Communications.
  5. Select New Microsoft Word from the page action menu.
  6. On the New Microsoft Word Communication dialog, choose the Case Participant and click Next.
  7. Enter a Subject and manually type in an address. Use a '#' character in one of the address fields, 'Room #10' for Street 1, for example.
  8. Complete the address and select an available Microsoft Word Template that will use the field containing the '#'.
  9. Click Save. This will open the Microsoft Word and attempt to populate the template.
  10. Issue: The Microsoft Word document will open. The Microsoft Word template fields after the '#' character will display the error message 'Error - no data retrieved' in place of the remaining address field values.




The presence of a '#' character in data used to populate Microsoft Word communication template details no longer causes an issue and any data containing that character will be populated correctly into the required template fields in the resultant generated Microsoft Word document.




The algorithm used to process and populate Microsoft Word template data has been updated to handle the presence of '#' characters correctly. This character did have a special meaning within that algorithm but now the combination of the following characters, '#|#', is used to delineate the template data for the different fields.
