To display, in your web screens, a list with the values of a specific attribute in a structure, you have to use the Combo Box widget as described below. The order of the list is arbitrary and defined by you when creating the list of values.

How to implement this behavior:

Simply use the following properties of the Combo Box widget:

  • Source Record List: The list that has the records that must be displayed and the order by which they are displayed. The list can also be created by your eSpace.

  • Source Entity/Structure: Name of the structure whose attribute you want to display.

  • Source Attribute: Name of the attribute whose contents you want to display. You have access to all the available attributes for the selected structure.

  • Source Identifier Attribute: Name of the attribute of the structure that will work as a key and whose value will be held by the Variable property.

  • Variable: Variable that will hold the Source Identifier Attribute of the row that corresponds to the user choice, after it is submitted. During the preparation of the screen, this property can be used to set a default value.

The Name and Width properties must also be filled-in. How?

Handling the end-user's selection

The end-user's selection is handled by the Variable property of the Combo Box widget.
