Lookup tables were working fine, but now spaces in answer options cause App Preview error

I have a form with 2 lookup tables, first to select municipality, and then
to select ward (filtered acording to municipality).
These forms have been working fine for several months and the lookup table
has not been changed.

When viewing the form in the App Preview I get the following error after
selecting municipality and attempting to go to the next question:

Select answer options cannot contain spaces. Question
org.javarosa.form.api.FormEntryPrompt@44627a6d with answer Ward 1

It seems to be objecting to “Ward 1”, the first option in the lookup table.

Note that this works fine in the app itself.

Is there any way around this? It used to work fine in the App Preview -
has something been changed?

Thanks,
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

Looks like this was caused by a bug released recently. I’ve submitted a fix
for this issue so it should be resolved later this afternoon EST.

Cheers,
Will

Hi Will,

Just noting that the fix doesn’t seem to have propogated yet - I still see
the issue on my side. If you update me once it is pushed I can check again
for you.

Thanks and regards,
Andrew

Andrew,

This should be fixed as of approximately last Wednesday. If this issue is
persisting for you please report a bug
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Bug+Reports.

One point of clarification: while spaces should now be allowed in Select
One (IE Multiple Choice) question values, they will not be allowed for
Select Multiple (IE Checkbox) question value. This conforms with XForms
standard and prevents data issues as Checkbox selections are stored in a
space separated list so spaces interfere with this storage mechanism.

Cheers,
Will
