Using drop-down DataWindows – PB Docs 126

Using drop-down DataWindows

When you tab to a column that uses the drop–down
DataWindow edit style, you can use the arrow keys on the keyboard
to change its value. If you click the column, the drop-down DataWindow
displays so that you can scroll to a different value and click to
select it.


You set the display properties for the column on the Edit
page in the Properties view in the DataWindow painter. The Width
of DropDown property sets the width of the drop-down display to
a size that is a percentage of the width of the column. For example,
300 sets the display width to three times the column width.


The default behavior uses inline frames (iFrames), which increases
the volume of markup generated. For DataWindow objects that make
heavy use of drop–down DataWindows, you can save bandwidth
by generating the drop–down DataWindows in HTML select
elements. To do so, clear the Generate DDDW Frames check box on
the Web Generation page with the Format to Configure option set
to HTML/XHTML or set the HTMLGen.GenerateDDDWFrames property
to “No”.

For information about the HTMLGen.GenerateDDDWFrames property,
see the DataWindow Reference or online Help.
