problem with dropdownListBox


I could able to bring data in dropdownListBox using JCO architecture, but when I am selecting the data and clicking on the button, nothing has been displayed.

I am using the attribute getSingleSelection to retreive the data, I want to know whether it works or not. If not, what attribute I need to choose??

Thanks in advance,

    Hi sree,

    SingleSelection is a boolean attribute which states if more then one entry can be selected at a time.

    In a DropdownListBox IListModel it must be true.

    You need to use getSelection().

    Hope that helps,

      Hi Sree,

      Here's some very simple code as an example of how a DropdownLisBox can be used in an iView.

      Make an iView out of this and have a look at what it does, read through the code and see what's going on.

      import com.sapportals.htmlb.DropdownListBox;
      import com.sapportals.htmlb.Form;
      import com.sapportals.htmlb.GridLayout;
      import com.sapportals.htmlb.Label;
      import com.sapportals.htmlb.event.Event;
      public class DDLBTest extends PageProcessorComponent{
      	private String selection = "";
      	public DynPage getPage(){
      		return new OutputDynPage();
      	public class OutputDynPage extends DynPage{
      		public void doInitialization(){
      		}// End doInitialization
      		public void doProcessAfterInput() throws PageException{
      		}// End doProcessAfterInput
      		public void doProcessBeforeOutput() throws PageException{
      			Form myForm = this.getForm();
      			GridLayout gl = new GridLayout();
      			DropdownListBox dd = new DropdownListBox("myDropdown");
      			dd.addItem("00", "Please Select");
      			dd.addItem("01", "Line One");
      			dd.addItem("02", "Line Two");
      			dd.addItem("03", "Line Three");
      			Label lb = new Label("myLabel");
      			gl.addComponent(1, 1, dd);
      			gl.addComponent(2, 1, lb);
      		}// End doProcessBeforeOutput
      		public void onSelect(Event evt){
      			Form myForm = this.getForm();
      			DropdownListBox dd = (DropdownListBox)this.getComponentByName("myDropdown");
      			selection = <b>dd.getSelection()</b>;
      		}// End method onSearch
      }// End class DDLBTest

      I hope that it helps you, if you have any questions, just ask.
