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

what is the advantage of using a single model in this scenario. Surely
allowing the select1 and the itemset to utilise different models permits the
gathering of data from multiple sources to be serialised for one submission?
How could that be achieved if the select1 and the itemset have to be from
one model?

Using different models seems to be supported in FormsPlayer 1, and gives a
very flexible architecture.

Regards

Rob

  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?

      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!
