    Colon placement for Display Constants when using the NewUI

    • Product: Primo
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct, Dedicated-Direct, Local

     

    Question

    Why is there a colon at the end of a constant in the full display?

    Answer

    In the New UI, a colon is added automatically by Primo when there is none at the end of the string.

    A few examples when adding the following line to the PNX:

    <lds02>$$Cmyconst$$VMy Value</lds02>


    (Back Office -> Code Tables -> Display Constants)

    No colon at end of string
    Code Output

    Colon within html tags
    Code Output

    The double colons are appearing since the last character of the description is not a colon.

    Colon after html tags
    Code Output
