TableView with DropDownList Box

Hello Experts,

I am trying to pull a drop down list box into a table view. The table already contains data, so I need the initial value to be pulled in to the field. I want the user to be able to possibly change the value using a drop down list box. I can get an input box to work but not a drop down list box. Here is my code:

<htmlb:tableView id = "Prescription"

headerText = "Prescriptions"

headerVisible = "true"

design = "alternating"

table = "<%= zzscript_fin %>" >


<htmlb:tableViewColumn columnName = "vetid"

title = "Vet"

type = "User" >

<htmlb:dropdownListBox id = "$TVCID$"

table = "<%= wa_vets %>"

selection = "$VETID$"

nameOfKeyColumn = "VETID"

nameOfValueColumn = "VETNAME" />


<htmlb:tableViewColumn columnName = "issued"

type = "User"

title = "Issue Date" >

<htmlb:inputField id = "$TVCID$"

invalid = "false"

value = "$ISSUED$"

size = "10"

maxlength = "20"

type = "Date"

showHelp = "true"

firstDayOfWeek = "2" />



The dropdown list <u>does</u> contain values, so I know it works, but the initial value is set to the first value in the dropdown table, not the overall table.

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Nicole,

    You will have to use an iterator to get things working here...

    For more on iterator refer to the following two blogs :

    1) <a href="/people/brian.mckellar/blog/2003/10/31/bsp-programming-htmlb-tableview-iterator Basics : By Brian</a>

    2) <a href="/people/thomas.jung3/blog/2004/09/15/bsp-150-a-developer146s-journal-part-xi--table-view-iterators Advanced : By Thomas</a>

    Hope this helps.
