Using Choice Set

A choice set is a type of a Data Service field, used to store an enumerated list of selectable items.

You can use a choice set to select an expense type, a forum post category, or a certain edition of a recurring event.

You can bind choice sets to the following controls:

  • Dropdown
  • Multiselect dropdown
  • List
  • Radio Button

Note:

Binding choice sets to a list source returns the options in that choice set.

Binding choice sets to a selected item binds the field value of that selected item.

When bounding to a selected item, it will bind the field value to that selected item.

Before you start

Make sure:

  • the entity with choice sets is imported in your app.

  • you have the proper permissions from Data Service.

Procedure

This example uses an entity called Fauna that has the following fields:

  • Animals - type Choice Set, multiple selection not allowed
  • Continent - type Choice Set, multiple selection allowed
  • Endangered - type Choice Set, multiple selection not allowed
  1. In your app, add the Fauna entity.
    You must include at least one entity to use the GetChoiceSet() function.
  2. Add a Dropdown control and configure it as follows:
    1. In the List Source field, reference the Animals choice set:
      GetChoiceSet("Animals")GetChoiceSet("Animals")
    2. In the Column field, write "DisplayName". This displays the display name of the choice set as an option in your control.
  3. Add a Multiselect dropdown control and configure it as follows:
    1. In the List Source field, reference the Continent choice set:
      GetChoiceSet("Continent")GetChoiceSet("Continent")
    2. In the Column field, write "DisplayName". This displays the display name of the choice set as an option in your control.
  4. Add a Radio Button control and configure it as follows:

    1. In the List Source field, reference the Endangered choice set:
      GetChoiceSet("Endangered")GetChoiceSet("Endangered")
    2. In the Column field, write "DisplayName". This displays the display name of the choice set as an option in your control.
