In this show I take a look at using a Combobox inside XPages. I’m going to demo how to use Java – but it’s NOT scary Java – I show you everything.
We’re going to show the user a pretty value in the combobox but get a hold of and store the key value for our use.
I’m also going to show how you can create categories inside the combobox. That’s kinda cool I think depending on your situation.
Oliver Busse – @zeromancer1972 – has another example of this on his blog. http://mardou.dyndns.org/Privat/osnippets.nsf/id/OBUE-9C5KDN
In that post he’s reading the data in from a view. Cool!
Ove Stoerholt just did a blog post on comboboxes. He discusses one “Gotcha” that you need to avoid. A really good post!
