Display value of a dropdown

Avatar

Level 3

Easy question for someone. Hard question for me. I have been trying to have a textField display the display value of a DropDown thats been populated with a script based on a radio button selection. I am having trouble having the text field display anything other then the value of the dropDown selection. I have tried the "value" instead of rawValue but am having no luck. Can anyone help me?

Hi,

When it comes to dropdowns, there are two properties that are at play. If you have specified values in the Object > Binding palette, then the .rawValue will access the bound value.

What you are after is the display value of the dropdown (eg what the user sees).

Here is an example:

Hope that helps,
