Invalid Property Value Error

The Invalid Property Value error is issued in the following situations:

  • <property> must be set in <element>

    You have a mandatory property that has not been set. For example, the Destination property in a Link widget.

    Set a value in the mandatory property.

  • 'Default Value' must be set to a <literal> literal

    The Default Value property must be a literal. You cannot set the property with an expression as, for example: 1 + 1.

    Edit the Default Value property of the element and set a literal value.

    In all the elements (except Session Variables and Site Properties), you can use one of the following built-in functions as default value: NullDate(), NullIdentifier, NullObject(), NullTextIdentifier(), CurrDate(), CurrTime(), CurrDateTime(), and NewLine().

  • <function> is not supported as default value in <element>

    You have a Session Variable or a Site Property with a function in the Default Value.

    Edit the session variable or the site property and use a literal value in the Default Value property.

  • '<Property>' must be set in pixels ('px') or percentage

    The value of a property must be in pixels or percentage. This occurs, for example, with the Width property of a table.

    Edit the property and append its value with px or %. If no measure is defined, Service Studio considers px.

  • <property> no longer set in <element>

    You have a mandatory property for which the value is no longer available or is invalid. For example, an Execute Action whose Action property does not have a value due to a Merge operation between modules or because the action to execute was deleted. This message usually appears when the property is read-only and you cannot set it directly in the element.

    To solve this error you must replace the element with a new element. For example, delete the Execute Action and add another one.

  • '<property>' cannot be set to the content of a widget

    You have a Record widget that is populated with the content of another widget or the widget itself. For example a Show Record widget whose Source Record is TableRecords1.List.Current.

    Edit the Source Record or Source Record List (depending on the widget), and use a variable that is not a runtime property of any of the widgets available on the screen. You must use local variables, queries, or lists evaluated in the Screen Preparation.

  • Property '[Name in Request/Name in Response]' has characters that are invalid when the '[Send In / Receive In]' is set to 'Header'. Make sure you only use valid header characters

    You receive this error because the 'Name in Request'/'Name in Response' property contains characters that are not valid for an HTTP request header.

    To solve this error, use valid characters only:

    • Uppercase and lowercase letters: A-Z, a-z
    • Digits: 0-9
    • These special characters: ! # $ % & * + \- . ~ | _ ^

    Alternatively you can change the value of the 'Send In' or 'Receive In' property, to send the parameter in the HTTP request body, or in the URL.
