New values for enumerations can’t be created in Mendix on the fly. They have to be added before the application is compiled and running.
If you want to add something automatically you’d need to look at using the Mendix SDK to create them. but that is quite a time consuming option.
would you happen to have steps required to import data and make an enumeration based off the data so I
do it the correct way? Is there a link or list of steps in order to successfully do this so I know for next time?
Not entirely clear on that to be honest. Is that if your looking to fill the enum option within the object? I am looking at actually importing from a file options to have as part of the enum. Hope this makes sense.
