    Hi Jing Zhang,

    When binding the dimension to dropdown. There will be property as follow filter state,if it is given value as true your code will not work.So you make it false then your code will work.

    Because follow filter state allow the dropdown to capture filter value of assigned data source and make it selected. It ignores Setselectedvalue() function.

    I am not able to find the Follow Filter State option. I am running Design Studio 1.6 SP3. Any suggestions?

      Hi Sue.

      In this situation,maby your question isn't related to mine.If you just need to reset the dropdown selectvalue changed when you click Reset All button,you should do like this:on your Reset All button,you just need add follow code :dropdown.setselectvalue("ALL");DS_1.clearfilter("XX").
