Add a List Selection Field

The List Selection Field is a feature that displays more descriptive text in a list box or a combo box when in add or edit mode. To use this feature, modify the view in SQL and update the List Selection Field in Stewardship Tier.

For example, two fields, ProductID and Description must display in the ProductID list box when in add or edit mode on the Order Details page. The description should only be visible in display mode. For both fields to display in the Product ID list box in edit mode, add a column in the SQL list view to concatenate the two fields.

Refer to Add List Boxes and Combo Boxes for general information.

To choose a descriptive field:

  1. Access the Page Columns page Vertical View for a list box or combo box.
  2. Click Edit.

    View the field descriptions for the Page Columns page

  3. Click the Advanced Properties tab.
  4. Select the concatenated or more descriptive field created in the view from the List Selection Field list box.
  5. Click Save.
