The Core Form Options component has a dialog field called Source which allows you to select a list of nodes from the path browser to make up the options in a dropdown list.
I have a node of jcr:primaryType = nt:unstructured with multiple child nodes of the same type that have String properties for text and value. When I try to select the parent node from the dialog, it does not show up in the path finder. I am able to manually enter the path to the parent node in the dialog field, and the dropdown list correctly populates, but only in authoring mode. When published, the dropdown field does not show on my page, presumably because it cannot resolve the path to the node.
Are there certain properties I'm missing on the node(s)? What do I need to do to get this to work correctly? I am on 6.4.2.
The dropdown is now correctly populating in my published instance. I believe the issue was related to the webserver cache. I'm still not sure why the pathfinder does not allow me to select the node itself, but filling out the path manually and uploading the node to the published server via a content package to activate seems to work.
In the Form Options component dialog, I am using the dialog field called Source and I have it set to 'List'. After selecting List, a new path field shows up which should allow me to select a path in my JCR where I've created nodes to represent dropdown items, but the nodes do not show up so I have to manually enter the path. Entering the path manually successfully populates the dropdown list in authoring mode, but not in published mode. I am not sure if the issues related to the nodes not showing in the path finder and the dropdown not showing in published mode are related. For now I would just like to get the dropdown items to show up in published.
