ESM v5.3 - User layout Issue

Please note this is only for v5.3 (Please contact support if similar issues occur in later releases).


Select user(s) not able to view perviously created layouts and to create new layouts

When creating a layout, if the user puts a checkmark next to a camera, THEN drags it down to the layout, it creates a NULL record in the database corrupting the layouts view. However, if the user does not place a checkmark next to the camera, and then drags it down to the layout, seems to work properly. 

Event viewer Application Error:

System.InvalidCastException: Conversion from type 'DBNull' to type 'String' is not Microsoft.VisualBasic.CompilerServices.Conversions.ToString(Object Value) at ipConfigure.ESM.UI.matrix.GenerateCustomTreeView() in F:\Fortress\ipConfigure 5_2 Code\32-bit\ipConfigure.ESM.UI\matrix.aspx.vb:line 247

Solution (Temp):

Change NULL layout description in ESM5_2_Central database >>dbo.tblLayout table

Solution (Perm):

Suggest updating build to latest released with enhanced user permissions -
