I just created a simple window in which i have two fields .

1: Description text box.

2: DropDownList for items from GP.

I want to show the list of items  from GP in a dropdown which  is  created by using dexterity.

Any who can precisely guide me for the expected solution.Thanks

    This will work, but as Drop Down Lists are limited to 32K items you will have issues of there are too many records being added. Also anything more than around 20-30 items and using a Drop Down List is not the best user experience.

    clear '(L) DDL Field';

    get first table IV_Item_MSTR;

    while err() <> EOF do

       add item 'Item Number' of table IV_Item_MSTR to '(L) DDL Field';

       get next table IV_Item_MSTR;

    end while;

    '(L) DDL Field' = max(1, '(L) DDL Field');

    There are working examples in the Dex help system, which is why I recommend it so strongly.  These examples related directly to the Dex Sample applications delivered on the installation media.

    Mike is correct, to dynamically build a drop down list use the add item command.

    To have static values, add them when you create the datatype for your field.

    Use the dex add item command to populate the ddl.  Dex help is your friend!
