Is it possible to retrieve the constraint check values from SQL Server in DatasourceInfo.AllowedValues as dropdown options?

Hi,

 

I am using SQL Server as my datasource and I was wondering if it is possible to retrieve the available check values from the SQL server in the DataCards' AllowedValues of a form.

 

In SQL Server I added the constraint at column level:

CONSTRAINT chk_lvl CHECK (level in ('1','2','3','4'))
 
Is it possible to retrieve the constraint check values from SQL Server in DatasourceInfo.AllowedValues as dropdown options?
 
Hope someone can help!

I don't believe you can get the constraint values for columns in SQL.  At least I have never been able to retrieve them.

The DataSourceInfo function will get them for some other sources such as SharePoint, but nothing from SQL.
