Hi @ammarfassy,

 

Can you send us more information?

a) where is the collection being populated from?

b) Can you send us a print screen of the columns of the collection (View\Collections)?

c) Where are you getting the ID from that should be defaulted to?

 

Kind regards

thanks a lot david for your reply.

 

I am populating this collection once the user logs into the app (onvisible event login form).

 

Upon that i have a list of items to be displaed on the Dashboard page. from there when the user selects an item, i am passing the leave Type (ID) to the Edit screen where the drop down reside. (have attached the screen shot)

 

Once the page opens i have to select the drop down value based on the passed parameter.

 

thanks,

Ammar

 

 

Anyway that you can attach the app. Otherwise you can send it to me at dawid.vanheerden@ukuvuma.co.za

 

Otherwise you can send me the print screen of the collection values, but this will take longer.

i will try to send you the package very soon.

 

the collection which i m deriving the collection is as below:

Hii @NigelP,

 

I already populated the following drop down using a collection (Sharepoint List) as below.

ID  Value

0   None

1 Personal

2 Official

 

For a drop down you will find the property named "Default". In that you can set the Default value for the drop down as below:

If(pLeaveMainType="0", "None", If(pLeaveMainType="1","Official","Personal"))
