Autobinding Yes / No Dropdown

Hi there Bubble Community,

I am using a drop down with Choice Style being Dynamic Choices
Type of choice is yes / no
I am autobinding this to a data thing where the data type is yes / no
I am not able to set the Choices source. I should be able to set this to yes and no as there are the only choice sources relevant but I am not able to do this.
Seems simple but I just seem to be stuck


Help anyone??
Thanks
Frank

Hey @duke.severn,
are you able to help me with this?

Hello, Frank,

Great question! Couple options here. You might define the dynamic choices based on a search for the yes/no field in your database, or you could define static choices as “yes/no” if saving to a text field. You can find some examples of these options here. Let us know if that helps!

You can create an option set (called boolean maybe) with an additional attribute, let’s call it yes/no (not the Display field) that is a yes/no field type and then use “Get an Option”, All Boolean’s yes/no and you can find it from there.

You need to define the data type on the parent group. It’s quite tricky to find out

Thanks Jess,
I went with this solution which is working however it seems like a bit of a workaround to something that should work ‘out of the box’
Regardless, it’s now working so thank you!

Thanks Dave, I did not understand your response on first read but now I do. I did go with Jess’s response but I like your’s better and will change as I think important to have the as an option set rather than a thing so the data gets published each time the app gets published. Cheers mate
