How to create scroll down feature?
I'd like to create a scroll down feature in a field of a datacard, for example, there are 12 multiple options (building names) for field "facility", I want to be able to scroll down to see the options and click one.
Hi - I may be incorrect - but I believe you're thinking about a feature that is in Adept - something we call "Restricted Lists."
If you log in as an admin - switch to the system tab - you'll see a "button" labeled "database fields."
Here you'll see all the custom fields you have in your system. there are a number of check-boxes that allow you to change how Adept treats each field - the one near the button labeled "restricted" is the one we're interested in.
Click on the database field you'd like to have this list of names - then click on "restricted" check box. The bottom right side of the dialog is now enabled - and you can enter a list of values that your users will see. Let's say you entered 6 strings, just for example.
When one of your users brings up the data card and tries to click on the field - it will now be a drop down list of values, rather than an edit box which they could have entered any string.
It's useful to do this to avoid spelling mistakes and/or to be sure valid data is entered. This is particularly important if you use this database field in a File Guide tree - because now you can be sure only valid values are there - rather than misspellings or illegal entries are there.
Hope this was what you were interested in doing...
