Dropdown

‌Dropdown is used to capture user input/s from a specified list of permitted inputs. A Dropdown can capture a single choice as well as multiple choices

Filtering Data

A Dropdown can be used to filter a dataset based on users input. The selected option value can be passed to an API using{{ dropdownName.selectedOptionValue }} for Single Select Dropdowns and {{ dropdownName.selectedOptionValueArr }} for Multi-Select Dropdowns.

Form Submission

Dropdown widgets can be used to capture from a fixed set of options inside a form such as gender, role, status.

Some forms need to be pre-filled data from a table or API. We can bind the data to the default text property to enable this

{{ Table1.selectedRow.gender }}
/**
* Binding this to the default option will update the selected option
* of the dropdown with the gender of the selected row in Table1
*/
