drop down box in interactive form UI element in webdynpro

Hello All,

I want to get a drop down list in adobe interactive form. I did the following.

1. created a simple dictionary data type and populated it with values

2. created a context and bound it to the simple dictionary type.

3. when I drag the element to the pdf page, it shows it as a drop down list.

4. when I run the application also, the drop down list comes but the values are not populated. I am not able to use the dropdown also.

What should I be doing now to get a dropdownlist that works?

    Hello Chander,

    what you want to create is a drop down list populated by the Web Dynpro context values. When you use drag-and-drop it just creates a regular drop down list (where you need to specify the values in the Designer).

    However if you select in your tools palette the Web Dynpro tab you will find special drop down lists. So here is what you do:

    1. Drag and drop a Value Help Drop-down List element from the Web Dynpro Library tab to the Body Pages pane.

    2. Drag and drop your node from the Data View tab onto it. This action binds the layout element to the corresponding node.
