WebGui / Grey colour behind SSID?

Hi all,

I've seen on some controllers on the monitoring page that there is a grey color behind the SSID (see attachment). Has anybody of you seen that too and has any idea what that means? I can't find anything about it in the manual.

Thank you in advance!

This happens when there is a space in the eSSID name.

Thank you David for your feedback! So there is no real meaning of the color? It's more like an "cosmetic bug"?

I believe this behavior is intentional to make the space more legible.

It is intentional behavior. We ran into some debugging issues with unnoticed and trailing spaces in the SSID. The gray line is used to denote an SSID that has a space. Without the gray line it can be very difficult to tell if there is a space in the name. This is not a bug.

Thank you all for your feedback!
I'm anyway always recommending not to use spaces in names but saw this behavior on a customer site.
