Has anyone created a dropdown list where you can edit the value field?
I am importing data from an external database with simple lookup columns that I'd like to map to a dropdown list, but I can't control the value of the prevalue list.
Take a look at Dirk's CodePicker data-type. It will let you use the values directly from your database. No need to add via PreValues!
Good luck, Lee.
I'm aware of that approach, but what I want is a dropdown picker in Umbraco editable values and no external database. I want to get rid of the external database, let's put it that way.
I'll examine how Umbraco stores the prevalues. Maybe I can edit the value directly.
Did you ever find a solution to this?
I want the same thing as my database that will contain the lookup values is behind a DMZ else I'd use www.netaddicts.be/.../...er-a-custom-datatype.aspx
My approach was to use a custom control with a custom values editor setting that contains my text/value pairs.Not the best but it does the job. Very surprised no proper solution exists for this!
I've come up against this again in Umbraco 8 Forms.
My task is to create a frontend drop-down list control of department names with editable prevalues that allow the user to associate email addresses (email, cc, bcc) with the drop-down list items, so that in the workflow we can send relevant emails to the user selected departments.
I've done it, but only by hard-coding the department options for the drop down list. (and then additional text fields for the user to input associated email addresses).
Ideally though the cms user should be able to add (or remove) department options in the prevalue editor but can't find the relevant Umbraco settings view so that we get the following control in the Form prevalues:
however I can't find the settings view that delivers the above and using ~\App_Plugins\UmbracoForms\Backoffice\Common\SettingTypes\dropdownlist.html (because it's reasonable to assume that the Umbraco uses the same named prevalue source file as the control name, yes?) just gives us:
I tried referencing ~\App_Plugins\UmbracoForms\Directives\umb-forms-prevalue-editor.html (which appears correctly (like top image) but the [ADD] button doesn't work, copying the file into the Backoffice/common/settings/ folder doesn't work and hunting out the umbraco code that appears to service this control (and attempting to reuse it) also hasn't worked.
