Bug Report : Generate Concatenation , Select Attributes

Hi guys,


I've found that if the pipe | character is used in an attribute name when Select Attributes tries to select it using Subset it will split the attributes into two.  

See below example.  


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><process version="7.6.000">
  <operator activated="true" class="process" compatibility="7.6.000" expanded="true" name="Process">
    <process expanded="true">
      <operator activated="true" class="operator_toolbox:create_exampleset_from_doc" compatibility="0.4.001" expanded="true" height="68" name="Create ExampleSet" width="90" x="179" y="85">
        <parameter key="Input Csv" value="att1,att2&#10;val1,val2"/>
      <operator activated="true" class="generate_concatenation" compatibility="7.6.000" expanded="true" height="82" name="Generate Concatenation" width="90" x="313" y="85">
        <parameter key="first_attribute" value="att1"/>
        <parameter key="second_attribute" value="att2"/>
        <parameter key="separator" value="|"/>
      <operator activated="true" class="select_attributes" compatibility="7.6.000" expanded="true" height="82" name="Select Attributes" width="90" x="447" y="85">
        <parameter key="attribute_filter_type" value="subset"/>
        <parameter key="attribute" value="att1|att2"/>
        <parameter key="attributes" value="att1|att2"/>
        <description align="center" color="transparent" colored="false" width="126">Note in here a subset is chosen to select the attribute att1|att2 However it will change to att1 att2 on execution.</description>

Re: Bug Report : Generate Concatenation , Select Attributes

Hi @JEdward - well that's an interesting one!  Yes that's easily replicated here on my machine.  OK I will pass that along.  Maybe this is a bug that can be a feature?  Smiley Happy
