Hi there

How do I dynamically populate a select menu?

I'd like one static <option> just labelled as "choose..." and then the rest of the options populated from a server action that I've created listing the options.

I can see there's an 'Options Properties' area in App connect when I select the select menu, but it doesn't seem to work when I try selecting data source, values and text in the 3 boxes from my Server Action.

Code that it's creating when I do this below:

<select name="product_c1" id="product_c1" dmx-bindptions="serverconnectListC1" optiontext="querySelectC1[0].product_cat_name" optionvalue="querySelectC1[0].product_cat_id">

I've tested the Server Action to make sure that works and it's showing the results just fine when I try the 'Open in browser' button to test it.

Would you be able to have a look and let me know how to do this so it works?

thanks in advance

No worries. Found it in this video

I was close, just not quite selecting the right thing for the Data Source.
