suggest values with dropdown functionality


We got NW 7.02 and i am using suggest value on my web dynpo input field. In created a data dictionary search help.

My Input feld is mapped with this search help over my context node.

So the suggest values is working fine...showing all my values form my ddic search help.

But because it is an input field the user can input some crap data in this field...and i am not able to avoid this.

So the field has to be like a dropdown field so the use can't type in crap data, or has to use only the data from the search help

Is there a way to accomplish this?

I hope you understand my problem and you can help me here.

Kind Regards

    Yes. You can create an drop down and then set the values using set_attribute_value_set( ) method.

    Check this document for reference: Creating the Value Set for a DropDownByKey Element

    hope this helps,

      Hi Rama,

      yes i need suggest values 😀

      i hope that the is a way to avoid the validation, because i use my searchhelp...

      As i mention abouve it would be nice to ONLY use the data from the searchhelp.

      So when there is no other way..i must validate to avoid the crap data...

      thx for the answers
