Tip #10 – Drop Down List

This Blog Article was brought forward from my old blog

Following the blog of Claus about drop down lists I would like to add some follow which is new for most developers.

Claus’ blog give a very accurate description about how to work with this new cool feature of NAV2009 but when I was explaining it for a developers class I found a little mistery.

The blog describes that, when you do not specify it, NAV will show the primairy key. But how does that explain the drop down of the Currency…

Please note that it shows Code and Description…

And nothing is defined in the Field Groups.

But the PK is just Code.

The explanation is simple. NAV will automaticaly add the Description field to the dropdownlist. Cool huh!

Same seems to work for the Name field.

Good luck
