Adding "Select one" to Dynamic Dropdowns

Thread began 12/09/2009 1:26 am by jim.anderson395726 | Last modified 12/09/2009 12:21 pm by Jason Byrnes | 1106 views | 1 replies |


Adding "Select one" to Dynamic Dropdowns


I have just started using Dynamic Dropdowns and encounter the following problem:

When my form is shown first the first dropdown shows "Select one" which is an option that I added in my dynamic list. As soon as a country is selected the category shows the first record (Airport). In order to see the choices in the third dropdown the usedr has to choose something else than "Airport" and then select agaion "Airport" to see the third dropdown. I prefer to have "Select one" instead of "Airport" so the user HAS TO MAKE A CHOICE. How do I achieve this.

Can someone help please.

You can see this in action at the following address:

On each of the child lists, you can add a static initial option. In the Populate List from Array behavior, set the "Leave Top" option to "1". This will force it to leave the initial static option you set for the list in place.
