Identifying fieldchoice

editSubscribe (0) ShareShare
Posted on by 5


I am in need of understanding the difference between a standard "lookup" as seen in the picture below.


And this type of "lookup" or choice/Option as I can not find any trigger or event in the source code or in the documentation.


Essentially I am wondering what the difference is in plain code between these two.

Thank you in advance.

(worth adding is that I am an intern with very little prior knowledge of AL development)
