Ho did you created the list in repo?
You have to create as a child of a node which you are browsing in the dialog?

Hi @johns56194565 ,

 

Are you trying to find an example of populating a drop down using data source?

Hi @ChitrMadan thanks for response too. I am not looking for data source but I am trying to use form option component on my page which has option to choose source as static list which exist in JCR. I want to understand how the list is created that I can use as source. Please refer to the doc I shared : https://docs.adobe.com/content/help/en/experience-manager-core-components/using/components/forms/for... it has an option to keep list in source.

Hi @arunpatidar thanks for replying and pointing to code but still it does not pick the list. Can you maybe share a snapshot of static list that is getting picked?

You need to do it like below :

1. Create a static list nodes , the option node should have text and value properties

e.g. /var/forms/dropdowns

Then use this in the node structure as list
