I know it is a type issue. I know what the red means. I know it is a type inconsistency. But that is what it doesn’t make sense to me. All the other input fields you set a value for the default value so it can show the parameter you are passing.
For me, it should not be a type list. It should be just one value that it needs to display.
I know what is wrong, I just don’t know how to fix it. Can someone demonstrate how to set the default value in a dropbox properly so it receives the court code I am passing?
I’m having a similar issue, but I want the dropdown to show the last modified thing in the list. Any ideas?
When I search the forum and documentation, there are several promising looking articles but they are private or have been removed.
I’m trying to set up some dropdown boxes:
They already have lists, and I would like them to be in alphabetical order. This is simply "Current User’s Medium List:sorted by Medium name."
Then, when the User clicks the ADD button, a PopUp appears, and the User can add to the list. This should then be seen in the dropdown box. This I can do with the default value Current User’s List:last item.
Clearly, I can’t have both as a default value for the dropdown box.
So the question is, where do I create the event that puts the ADDed thing on the List into the Value of the dropdown box?
Is this something that happens when I hit ENTER after ADDing the thing?
Maybe it’s a Custom Event.
Maybe I should go with 2 above Current User’s List:last item. as default, and THEN sort alphabetically.
I may be accused of having an obsession with groups … but I think this is the same as …
Put the drop down in a group, and have the default set to the group thing.
Then send different “defaults” to the group depending on your workflow, so right after you add the new ADDed thing,you send that to your group as the default. Otherwise you set it to the first alphabetical.
You would have an “add title” button in your popup though ?
I think that is what I am understanding. So, you have a dropdown. Then you have an “add” button that adds a new value to the drop down ? Some sort of save / cancel … and if Save the value is the one in the dropdown ?
This is looking fantastic, and works exactly as I wanted. I have even added the workflow to clear the input box in the popup.
However, I still don’t get the relationships, parent/child stuff. The Add New input does not seem to be related (in a group with) the Title dropdown.
Could you possibly add another field eg. Medium on the same page. Exactly the same idea as with Title. But I feel sure that I am missing something with the groups and so can’t replicate it on my page!
In my data, I have a Data Type OBJECT, with Fields for type OBJECT named Title, Medium etc. So there is already a relationship there, with I need to build in to the system. But at least I can see that it CAN be done, so thank you!!!
@NigelG I have made another input mechanism, and got it to work!!! Wonderful!!
I’ll make some notes on the Forum App for others to try and follow what we are doing here, when they come across the same problem. And I’ll try and figure out the Data Type and Fields issue. But I’ll have to do that tomorrow afternoon. Good night!
