Dynamic List/Menu - MySQLi recordset not showing as an option?

Dynamic List/Menu - MySQLi recordset not showing as an option?

I have a regular drop down menu on my page and I'm clicking the "Dynamic" button to select my MySQLi recordset as the source for the data except DWCC 2014 isn't, once I get to the Dynamic List/Menu properties dialog, showing any recordsets in the "Options from recordset" drop down. It simply states "None".

Problem with DW or problem with MySQLi?

Page attached. Thank you.

What version of the MySQLi extension do you have installed?

Make sure you have the most recent version, 1.0.2. if you have a previous version, make sure to uninstall it from the extension manager before installing the newer one.

1.0.2 is already installed.

Uninstall MySQLi 1.0.2 and reinstall. I am not able to reproduce on my system with 1.0.2 installed.

Hi Jason. This issue has arisen again, so I removed and reinstalled the extension but this time it isn't resolving the issue.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice now, including an uninstall, reboot, reinstall, reboot. In short, I've tried everything but the problem remains.
I attach the page for further investigation.

My setup:
Intel i7, 32GB RAM, DWCC2014, MySQLi Server Behaviours 1.0.2

Thank you

Can you test the recordsets?

The only way I am able to reproduce this is if I turn of the MySQL server so that the recordsets do not work.

double click the MySQLi recordset and click the test button to make sure they work before trying to use the Dynamic List button.

I'm having this same issue since installation. Newest version of the MySQLi extension and DWCC2015. I give up on working then go home. And voila on my home computer it shows up. Then it stops working and I give up working at home. Next morning on my work computer voila it shows up. Then it stops working......

I've refreshed my files. Tested my recordsets. Deleted and redid my recordsets. Rebooted the computer. Turned computer off for an hour. Refreshed my MySQL server. Nothing solves the issue other than just giving up and going home to another computer.


What is the issue?

You can't build dynamic menu's in DW with the WebAssist MySQLi recordsets. If you create a MySQL recordset, it will work.
