Auto Fill Pull down question

Avatar

Level 1

Hello All

I've been using LiveCycle about a year, I have a question on Pull downs with autofill.

I have a form that my accounting group has asked to have a user select text and return a account number.

The form loads the pull down with all the text in a list, I can select the item and return the Account number in another Text box but I would

like to overwrite the Cell that the pull down is using on exit.   Can this be done or do I need to hide a text box along with the pull down in the

same cell.

I've tried to use the Exit event without any luck.

Hi,

Do you want to overwrite the dropdown that's used to select account number itself ?

Thanks,

Yes I would like to overwrite the text in the pull down  with the account code.

I guess I did not say this very well.  I can get the account number to show up in a

new text box but I would like to overwrite the pull down text box.

thanks

Hi,

Make a hidden text field. In the change event of the DropDown show the account number in the text field.

In the exit event of the dropdown show copy the value of the TextField to teh Dropdown.

Thanks,
