Hi @sanrajbhar,

 

When I want to do this, I insert a ComboBox on the screen independently from the form. I then set the Form field default value to the value selected in the ComboBox. You need to unlock the label field advanced properties to do this.

I put the ComboxBox over the label field, and set Visible property of the Form label field to false (but not the other elements of the data card).

 

The user chooses a value in the ComboBox, and the form automatically updates to this value. The user has the illusion the ComboBox is part of the form, but it is not.

 

Hope this helps,

Frédéric

Place the combobox within a datacard and then on the Update property of the datacard write:

Update = Concat(ComboBox1.SelectedItems,<column_for_values>,"\")
