Select List on Update

I have an Update page made with Data Assist and want the value in the database to select the appropriate value in the select list.

There used to be a lightning bolt in the properties after clicking on the select list, but this isn't available any more.

How can I go about this please?

What version of Dreamweaver do you have installed?

if it is DW CC, make sure to install the depreciated server behaviors extension:

do you have the lightning bolt when selecting other form element types?

What happens if you open the bindings panel? go to window -> bindings

double check that the site settings are correct and that you are using a php page that is saved to the site.

I have the bindings panel already.

If I select a text field, the lightning bolt is next to the Value field in the properties inspector.

that is strange, In DWW CC, i see the dynamic lightning bolt in the properties inspector. try changing to strait design view instead of split view and select the list in design view?

what extension including the version numbers are installed?

What is your OS?

there are more up to date versions of Data Bridge and eCart.

try uninstalling DB and eCart, then download the latest version from your download center.

if the probelm persists. try uninstalling and reinstalling the server behaviors extension.

after that, I'm afraid, you will need to contact Adobe support as the dynamic option in the property panel is a part of Dreamweaver, not a part of our extensions.

Hmmm

Ive updated as suggested, restarted my machine etc etc but unfortunately its still not working... I have posted on the Adobe forum (over 10 hours ago, but as yet haven't had any replies).

Im trying to get the select list to show the recordset value as default for the update page.

Is there another way that I can achieve this or is the code fairly simple to write to insert a recordset binding into?

if you don't have the dynamic binding, you would need to hand code each option, the code would look similar to this:

<option value="1" <?php if (!(strcmp(1, $row_recordsetName['columnName']))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>News</option>
<option value="2" <?php if (!(strcmp(2, $row_recordsetName['columnName']))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>Courses &amp; Seminars</option>
