SetValue in dropdownbox


I have a dropdownbox.

r1c1 is a dropdownbox.

oJSONModel1.loadData(sUrlSlots, null, false);


var oItemTemplateDate = new sap.ui.core.ListItem({

text : {

path : "SlotDt",

formatter : function(fValue) {"sap.ui.core.format.DateFormat");

var oDateFormat = sap.ui.core.format.DateFormat.getDateTimeInstance({

pattern : "YYYY-MM-dd"


if (fValue != undefined || fValue != null) {

fValue = fValue.toString();

fValue = fValue.slice(6, -2);

fValue = Number(fValue);


return oDateFormat.format(new Date(fValue));




oItemTemplateDate.bindProperty("enabled", "enabled");

r1c1.bindItems("/d/results", oItemTemplateDate);


I am trying to set default value from a list


But its not working. Any hint how to resolve this issue.

Best regards,

    The value you are trying to set, does it have the same format as the formatted value of your listitem template?

    • Are there no errors in the console?

      Is oFreightOrder.ZZSLOT_DT really a string value in format "YYYY-MM-dd"?

      Does that value also exists in your dropdown?

      Are you sure the 'setValue' method is being called?

      If so, then I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work... Therefore, it must be anything from the above
