Hi, Neil… I’m not sure about the auto-binding question… I would probably need to poke around under the hood a bit to see what’s going on there.
About the second question, if you are only saving the option’s attribute in the database and not the option itself, you could do something like the following to get to the option from the attribute (in this example, I am storing the attribute in a field called
frequency numeric on the
User data type).
You might also want to save the option itself to a field in the database so you have “easy” access to it without having to “back into it” via its attribute. Now that I think about it, if you save the actual options, you would still have access to their attributes, so you might not need the number field to store the attributes. So, anyway, I think you’ve got some options here.
