Using Collections and a ListBox

Hi all,

 

Is there a way to return a value from a collection depending on another value in the same row of that collection?

 

For example below...

 

Collection.PNGListBox.PNG

I am looking to display the Rate of the Name selected from the ListBox in the label to the right of it.

Eg. If "John Doe" was selected in the list box, "£75.70" should appear in the label.

 

Any help would be great, thanks.

Re: Using Collections and a ListBox

You can use the Selected property of the Listbox in the label next to the listbox to display the rate of the item that is selected:

ListBox1.Selected.Rate

However, a listbox is a control where by default you can select more than one item at the same time, and if multiple items are selected the label will display one of them (I believe it's the last one to be selected, but this is not guaranteed). If you want to use it as a "single-selection" control, you should set its 'SelectMultiple' property to false.

Hi

I resolved this in a rather clunky way by Collecting a variable as follows

{Mrate: lookup(membersrolerate,name=dropdown.selected.value,Rate} and set the text property of the label = Mrate

 

 

Cheers
