"Simple type" package not available to choose , why???

Hi,

I am trying to make a drop down box and add items in it.

I create a simple type call "Factories" under Dict->Simple Type, i name the package "com.123"

now when i try to bind a context value attribute, and set the attribute type to the simple type i just create, the package com.123 is not there for me to select.

why? and how do i choose ?

Thank you guys.

    hi

    Have created com.test in lower case letters ,not the

    upper case as in your previous post,because by convention

    package name starts with lowercase.

    If you have created A simple type Factory in package com.test

    succesfully ,and you want to bind the context attribute that property

    you have a type property to that context attibute.

    A small box beside a drop down is present for the type property of your context attribute,you click on it

    A window will be opened ,in that Two radio buttons are present,

    you select Dictionary Simple Type radio button

    You go to

    Dictionaries

    Local Dictionaries

    <your package>

    <your Simple Type>

    selct your simple type that you have declared

    and press OK

    Hope this was your problem ..if any queries reply back

    Regards

    Hi erv2,

    while Creating Simple Type, in the Package Name " It does n't allow Decimal in the First Position after the .( dot ) ". That is the mistake.

    Ex :- Package Name --> " com.123 " --> Not Valid

    Ex :- Package Name --> " com.x123 " --> Valid

    So Change Your Package Name & Try.

    With Regards,

    Roop Kumar.

    Hi,

    You cannot create package com.123.In fact it does not allow to create a package which starts with digit.

    The correct ways is com.sap or any other which starts with alphabet.It does not allow even Special character to start with and end with

    e.g.

    com.sap -


    valid

    com.sap111 -


    valid

    com.1sa -


    invalid

    com.@aa -


    invalid

    com.sap@@ --- invalid

    Regards
