Re: Dropdown Menu to show objects instead of text

I had to self resolve this by applying context variable concept on the object or image and then using switch command on the onchange properties of the dropdown.

Re: Dropdown Menu to show objects instead of text

I would probably use a gallery instead of a dropdown and use the Image, Title, Subtitle layout. The gallery could have a search box that lets the user to type if they dont want to scroll through the entire gallery (although they would have to do the same in case of a dropdown). Once the desired record is found, they can click on the gallery row and you can do exactly the same thing in the OnSelect property of the gallery as you would have done if you would have used a dropdown. 

 

Let me know if this helps.

Its a simple chart shows a warehouse layout and each rectangle is the rack that show how much weight is loaded on it based on the colour code. So the user will select the colour code to indicate how much weight was loaded on it. Gallery wont fit this requirement since layout is one of the key things.

Can you use a combo box instead? Set the Items property of the combo box to the entity that stores your data. Then Edit the Fields property and select Person layout. You should then be able to select an image, and a couple of fields that will display when the combo box is expanded. 

 

Please let me know if this helps

There is no data , its just a notice board to show the colour codes referencing to the weight from the legend piece.

Its just a dummy board where the user just choose the colour against the colour code.
