How to allow Drop Down listbox to accept null values/no value


Level 1

Level 10

You can add an entry with a space in it or you can type the word null to represent no selection



Level 2

You can have an entry in the list to represent no value ("<none>").

Then you can add an exit script that looks like:

if (this.rawValue === "<none>") {
    this.rawValue = null;

This way, when the user selects the "<none>" entry, the value will be set to null when they exit the field.


The ultimate experience is back.
