How to create drop down list populated with all users?

Hey everyone,

Please excuse my ignorance as I am very new to Cloud Apps Studio. I need to create a drop down list in my custom B.O that is programmatically filled with all users in the system. What steps should be taken to create the drop down list?

Below is an example of the element I need to make a drop down list;

[Label("EmployeeCredited1")] element cred1:LANGUAGEINDEPENDENT_EXTENDED_Text;

Thanks,

Clay

    Hi Melissa,

    I agree with Horst + putting a lot of entries in a dropdown box will make your browser slow.

    A better idea would certainly be to use an object value selector ("F4 help") for your field. This would give you the autocomplete feature + you can filter the users.

    • Stefan,

      Thanks a ton for the help. I'm getting closer to my end goal. But now I am running into a problem with the OVS. When opened, they are causing an error and contain no employee data. Do I need to do any special binding or inport?

      Thanks,
