Use of returned value for Selected Values in a dropdown

Hello:

Trying to use the returned value from a php function for the Selected Value in a drop down. But it doesn't appear to work. Can returned values be used in the Selected Value field?

In the Selected Values field of the drop down I am putting {var:get_parent_id}. I am running {fn:get_parent_id} in the Event just before the view:form. To make sure the function is properly returning a value, I used the same {var:get_parent_id} in a text field of the same form, and it is showing the correct value.

Thanks -

Hi Corinne,

Yes, that should be working already, the var is working in a field "label" but not in the "selected value" ?

Hi Max

Now, the dropdown selection works, but i dont know how i can give the first value for the load. Actually it shows nothing.
Debugger:
"WHERE `Aufnahmen`.`status` = ''"


Where can i set the first value "status = offen" is my big question

Thank you

Wohoooo i found the solution in two small character /-

This work
status:{data:ddstatus}/-


Nice, nice, nice

Hi Corinne,

The syntax "status:{data:ddstatus}" is enough, but the "/-" means that if the shortcode returns nothing then ignore that parameter in the query, I guess it worked for you because you do not usually have the status field available.

This is good, but how do you get it to return just non-null records? When I use a where condition, with or without the /- I get back whatever number of is set in the limited dialog (this is using CC v6.06) or just all of the null records

Hi CSDweb,

You can use the
Field/IS NOT:{value:null}
syntax
