Notes and gotchas

  1. When connected to dictionary, note that a dictionary include “text” and “value” columns. While the textual representation is selected it is actually holding the underlying value. As a result on a signed document produced from Cellosign the text value will appear and the underlying value is transferred as a result in archive process.
  2. When applying multi-select on PDF templates, make sure to leave enough room for selection, also note that on a PDF result that values are concatenates on a single line. make sure to have enough room as needed, otherwise your values will be truncated from PDF.
  3. When list of values is coupled with a dictionary and you wish to assign a value on condition, make sure to add the “value” from dictionary and not the text.

When checking conditions on the list type controller, the following options are displayed:

EqualIf the list controller is exactly equal to the entered value.
Not EqualIf the list controller is not equal the entered value.
EmptyIf the list controller has no value.
Not EmptyIf there is any value in the list controller.
