Hi,

In the table control there is drop down for one field.

But when I click on drop down I m getting on extra blank value at the end of list.

How to avoid that?

Thanx.

Hi Umesh

Drop down comes with SPACE by default,

just to notice the change see the same field by making it in DISPLAY mode (ie grey the field) and now notice the change. <u>it will not have any SPACE by default</u>

Reason Y: drop down is meant to select a value from the list of values right? so now what if the user does not wnt to give in any value or what if the user wants to change the value to NULL or EMPTY or INITIAL.

thats the reason Drop Down comes with a SPACE by default.

Hope this is clear

Regards

hi,

it can happen two ways if u have selected just a list box try selecting list box with key which wouldnt leave any balnk...

the check table may have a blank entry (or the search help) in the database table from where you are reffering to the list box.

I have also had this problem when you enter specific values in a Domain. I ended up creating a check table and linking that instead.

hi

you can also make that drop-down field mandatory. if we do so, even though we have a blank entry, the user cannot use that.

thx
