[solved’ish] @getprofilefield not working in embedded outline computed backgrounds

Just a quick one for anyone getting an ECL / Notes Execution Alert from -No Signature- on -not known- with the action GetProfileField

This can come from using @getprofilefield for a “hide when” – which IBM has no plans to fix – http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21247497

or, as has taken me a while to discover, if you use profile fields to set the background colour on outlines which IBM may fix – http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1LO45177

The workaround is to use @dblookup I suppose. If you do this then do not use the “nocache” option.

Update

I also had to edit the page using the DXL edit option to remove some references that were not visible in the UI – use the right click “edit with DXL” option in the design element tree – not something to be done willy nilly.
