[Archivesspace_Users_Group] when component has multiple container instances, PDF displays only the last one

It looks to me like this works as expected in a vanilla instance of the ASpace PUI.  See http://test.archivesspace.org/repositories/2/resources/45 (complete aside:  it's great that LYRASIS keeps this test site up, especially for testing purposes!).  I just mocked up an example, and here is the output for one of the archival objects:

Box 1; Folder 1 (Mixed Materials)
Box 2; Folder 1-6 (Mixed Materials)

The Harvard PDFs are pretty customized (and they look great and load very quickly, by the way!), so I'd expect that there might be some small issue that's just causing the last instance to be grabbed when it's creating the array of instances (either that or it could be a display issue in the view?).

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] PUI: when component has multiple container instances, PDF displays only the last one


We noticed recently that the PUI PDF is not displaying all top container data for a component. For example, a particular component has 8 physical containers defined as follows:

Box: 1 (Mixed Materials)
Box: 13 (Mixed Materials)
Box: 19 (Mixed Materials)
Box: 21 (Mixed Materials)
Box: 23 (Mixed Materials)
Box: 26 (Mixed Materials)
Box: 27 (Mixed Materials)
Box: 49 (Mixed Materials)

In the PUI, all of these top containers display OK but in the PUI PDF, only the last one displays:

Personal and professional correspondence, circa 1960-2004
Identifier: Box 49
Date: circa 1960-2004

The number of top containers does not matter -- this happens if there are 2 physical containers or 20; always it's the last container only that displays in the PDF.

Anyone else experience this? Any solutions? Thanks. --julie
