After converting an integer to text field, grid control thinks it's still an integer field

  • 1) An integer field is in grid control on a regular rollbase ui "New record" page. 2) Convert the integer field to a text field in the Object Definition. 3) Try to enter a text value "xyz" in the grid, and you will get an error "Row 1: xyz is not a valid number". 4) Configure the grid and you'll see the field that was converted to a text is still listed as "Integer" type. 5) Remove the field from the grid. Save. Then add the field back to the grid. Save. - Now you can enter text values because the field is now showing up as "Text" instead of "Integer". Thanks, Mike
  • Try reload this customer - I'm sure the problem will go away. Or just wait till next morning.
  • Ok, thanks Pavel.
