How do I populate a drop-down list from a schema variable


Not applicable
I'm a novice programmer and new to the LiveCycle environment. I need help to populate a drop-down list in LiveCycle from a hard coded variable within my form's schema. I have a list of 28 names (the number of names and actual names change annually). That list is used over 30 times within a form for different selections. Since the list rarely changes, I would prefer to hard code it and make changes to the schema when they occur.

If I can't find a solution, I will be updating over 30 separate drop-down list objects each time there is a change to the list.

Thanks in advance for any help

Can you post your schema to and I will have a look. You will also need to indicate which node in the schema is supposed to populate the dropdown.
