Hi Induja,


I see you have completed traditional web development and also achieved certificate so indeed it's very simple question, I'm not sure if you want just a combo box from static entity. If this is your requirement, you can have a look into below snaps taken from combo box exercise(OSMDB) :

You just need to map Source Entity property of your combo box to Static Entity that's it. Perhaps you can also include some extra data by using Special List property as above.

Note: Variable in property should have ID attribute or attribute which data you want to save into your DB.

I will also suggest you to go through that training video again for better understanding of widget.
