Dots messing up your binding path


When naming the properties of a class in a management pack you should stay away from dots (“.”) in the property id. Some times you might feel tempted to include a dot after a prefix (maybe the company name or something) in the id property as you might do for the id of a custom management pack. Including a dot in the id of a property will mess upp the binding path of your forms which will result in your forms not storing the modified values in the instances.

Thanks for verifying Anders!

<Property ID=MyDate Type=datetime” />
<Property ID=“Prefix_MyDate Type=datetime” />

Not OK!!!
<Property ID=Prefix.MyDate Type=datetime” />
