Dropdown, option sets and dates

My drop down menus keep showing up blank. I’m not sure what I am doing wrong. There are the appropriate number of blanks though.


Are your options dynamic or static? :slight_smile: :computer:


Hey, they are dynamic. I am assuming they have to be dynamic but maybe they don’t need to be and that’s the problem? :woman_shrugging: :woman_facepalming:

Dynamic dropdowns are for when you have options that are things or option sets.

And static dropdowns are for options that are like yes and no, or text that always be the same

I had a similar issue recently, mine was related to the privacy of the “thing” that was supposed to appear in the drop down.

So, if you are populating that drop down with a list of things, could be worth checking the privacy settings of the “thing”

Thanks, I am going to see if changing to static helps. Do you know how to add a price to a drop down item that can then be “totaled”?

Static Worked! THANK YOU!

Please explain a little more

If they select item a from the drop down (which is currently written in plain static text “item a- $20” and then pick item b from the second drop down. I’d like them to see a total for their selections. Does that make sense?

Ohh, okay. Are the prices created by you (developer) or by users?

Me :slight_smile:

You can have the options in option sets, and 2 attributes, the name of the product in the Display attribute (default one) and create another attribute (price) type number and enter the price of the product.

In the dropdowns you can have all products. Then you can have a text element with dynamic text like "Dropdown´s A price sum with Dropdown´s B price.

What are you trying to do?

I’m trying to make a subscription service for a farm share. So you pick the size share you want, then you can add “add on items” and you select if you want weekly or bi-weekly delivery. I’ll try the attribute thing :slight_smile:

Here is a tutorial from @Bubble

This was amazing. Thank you so much!!! I have one more question if you don’t mind, you’ve been so helpful. I am trying to set a display that say when the next delivery will be. So if they are weekly (deliveries are on Mondays) and today is Sun April 4th it should say Monday April 5th under next delivery. Or Monday April 19th if they are bi-weekly. Any ideas?

I don’t know what you mean, but you can have the range between 2 dates. Please explain

I need it to display the next date they would receive a delivery. Or like how when you order from like doordash it will tell you when your order should arrive? Like that with days instead of time.

You can have something like:

"Next order date - current date :format as days" days for the next order.

You rock!
