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:
|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.
