Question

Hi, I just wanted to share information regarding Dropdowns. There is also a HowTo article regarding Dropdown: https://howto.caspio.com/datapages/datapage-components/dropdowns-and-listboxes/ 

 

As Form Elements 

Dropdowns are available as Form Elements option. To make a certain field as a Dropdown, just select the Field from the DataPage and set the Form Element to 'Dropdown'.

Source 

There are three types of Sources as to how can you retrieve your values from the Dropdown. You may choose Custom Values (which is the default), you may also choose Lookup table or View, and both.   

 

Custom values - lets you display a list of choices with defined values according to your own preference.

 Lookup tables or View  lets you retrieve information from a table as a source of values for displays which also lets you custom the values.

Both- Lets you merge Custom values and Lookup table or View. There are some instances where you might need to add certain values that may be included in a lookup and additional values, choosing Both would be the best option.  

 

Additional Tech Tips 

There are also some related articles in which you may opt to add 'any' options from your dropdown. Here it is: https://howto.caspio.com/tech-tips-and-articles/common-customizations/adding-an-any-option-to-a-dropdown/
