The Drop Down List is a popular method for selecting lookup values.
The Ship Via field on the Orders edit form is automatically configured with Lookup item style. Let’s change this field into a Drop Down List.
Start the Project Designer. Switch to the Controllers tab, and double-click on Orders / Fields / ShipVia field node.
Change the following properties:
|Property ||New Value |
|Items Style ||Drop Down List |
|Data Value Field ||ShipperID |
|Data Text Field ||CompanyName |
Press OK to save the field, and click Browse on the tool bar to generate the web app.
When your web browser opens, navigate to the Orders page and edit a record. The Ship Via field is now a Drop Down List.
