Entering preset data from a value list
A field can display predetermined values as a radio button set, a checkbox set, a drop-down list, or a pop-up menu. You can use these value lists to quickly enter preset data.
Choose or click Other. Type a value in the dialog box, then click OK.
Clear an Other value
Choose or click Other. Delete the associated value in the dialog box, then click OK. (This action clears the field.)
Choose Edit, then change the values in the dialog box. Click OK.
The options available in a value list depend on the field setup. For example, the setup determines whether the Other or Edit items appear in radio button sets, checkbox sets, drop-down lists, or pop-up menus. For more information, see Setting up a field to display a pop-up menu, checkbox set, or other control.
If the field is defined with the Member of value list validation setting, you can't type a value that doesn't appear in the value list. See Defining field validation.
When you select a rotated field in Browse mode that is formatted as a value list, the field is temporarily displayed unrotated while you enter data.
You can Shift-click a radio button to clear it, but in some cases this may not clear the field. For example, a field called Color is formatted on Layout #1 to display two radio buttons, Black and White. The same field, Color, is formatted on Layout #2 as a text entry field that accepts any value. If a user has entered Red in the field on Layout #2, the information is now stored in the field, but doesn’t display on Layout #1. To clear the field from Layout #1, select the field, then choose Edit menu > Clear.
