What is the difference between a CFL and a ComboBox?

Hi, everybody

What is the difference between a ChooseFromList and a ComboBox?

When is it preferable to use one rather than the other?

Thanks

Leon

    Hi Leon

    A choose from list is basically the table being showed whether using filter or not, and also many columns to display if you want ordering them as well..

    The ComboBox is only some values that you can add whatever you want, it is only Code and Description, it doesn`t need to be related to a table.

    "So, a ComboBox is more versatile than a CFL?"

    Not exactly, you can`t filter for more than one "Column" you can only filter the Description or the Code field

    "There are things that a ComboBox can display, but a CFL cannot display?"

    Yes, CFL only shows records from a table, ComboBox you can add anything you want limited to two columns (Code, Description)
