Using reference selectors with ENUMs

0
Hi, I have created a few Enumerations that I want to use with Reference Selectors with a specifc value as default but which lets a user select another option from the drop down list.  When I run the app, I can't see any data at all in the Reference Selector. Am I trying to do something that isn't possible?

Hi Ben,

You should use the dropdown widget for enumerations. Reference selectors are for selecting objects.

Hello Ben,

Reference selectors and Enumeration dropdowns are interchangeable for most functionality but you shouldn't use them together, if you want to give users a preset choice you should use a dropdown widget - as Paul mentioned. 

You can use reference selectors to create a user made selection for a drop-down, but you should use a string attribute instead of an enumeration so users can add more options, and you have to create the objects before they become available.

Hope this helps

Ah yes, thank you both.  I have it working now.
