Thanks for that - I'll look into changing it to only use one model if I can,
as I can't see anything else wrong with it.

Carryl,
 
Wow! I believe that's now a collectors' item ;)
 
But on your general point, yes @selection="open" should work the way you
describe.
 
Mark
 
PS There is some ambiguity as to whether you should be allowed to use a
different model on the xf:itemset than on the xf:select1. The consensus at
the moment is that they should not be from different models, so watch out
there, too.

Hi Mark,
 
We are using quite an old implementation - the "Working Draft 18 January
2002" version, which would explain the use of deprecated tags.  However,
this version still describes the use of this attribute, so I thought it
should work!
 
Cheers,
Carryl

Carryl,
 
<selectOne> had its name changed a very long time ago to <select1>, and
<caption> is now <label> ... so I think the first question is what
implementation are you using?
 
Regards,
 
Mark

Subject: selection="open" attribute on a selectOne element


Hi,
 
I'm trying to get a field that shows a value pulled from the database, but
then allows the user to either accept this value, or input a new value - I
had understood this was possible using the selection="open" attribute on a
selectOne element, but can't get it to work.  The field displays the value
pulled from the database, but doesn't allow me to input an alternative
value.
 
It could be that I am merely missing some code to handle the input
correctly, or something else, I'm not sure - see code snippet below:
 
       <xf:selectOne selectUI="menu" ref="/data/xmit_num" model="pagedata"
id="LPStoPSXmitNum" selection="open">
        <xf:itemset nodeset="//configset/configitem" model="existingconfig">
         <xf:caption ref="lps_to_ps_xmit_num"/>
         <xf:value ref="lps_to_ps_xmit_num"/>
        </xf:itemset>
       </xf:selectOne>
 
Any and all advice gratefully received!
Carryl
