Dropdown box doesn't save section

The dropdown box (Select Cell template) doesn't save its values once you change them.

I can pick and choice them find as Marlon Domingos set it up.

But once I pick my new setting, and save my xml data, the values still are the default ones that i'm grabbing off my sql.

I still can't get a dropdown box to save back to an XML table. Has anyone else had success with this? I can pick it find, but when I save the grid, the old value is always still there.

Hi,

Here is the template code that I use

if (!window.Prima) Prima=[]; 
if (!Prima.Templates) Prima.Templates=[]; 

Prima.Templates.StatusSelect = Active.Templates.Text.subclass(); 
Prima.Templates.StatusSelect.prototype._options = new Array();

Prima.Templates.StatusSelect.create = function() 
{ 
    var obj = this.prototype; 

    //------------------------------------------------------------ 
    //Add the text value pair to the select dropdown list 
    //------------------------------------------------------------ 
    obj.addOption = function( text, value ) 
    { 
        this._options.push( new Array( value ? value : text, text) ); 
    } 

    obj.clearOptions = function() 
    { 
        this._options = new Array(); 
    } 
    
    obj.getOptions = function() 
    { 
        return this._options;
    } 

    // editor is not part of the template, 
    // there is only one single instance of editor object. 
    var editor = new Active.HTML.DIV; 
    editor.setTag("select");
    editor.setClass("templates", "input"); 
    editor.setAttribute("type", "text"); 
    editor.setEvent("onblur", function(event) { this.switchToTextMode( event ); } ); 
    editor.setContent( "options", function() 
    {
        var text = template.getItemProperty("text");
        var inputOptions = obj._options;

        var optionsHTML = new Array(); 
        for( i=0; i< inputOptions.length; i++ )
        { 
            var oTag = new Active.System.HTML(); 
            var val = inputOptions[i][0]; 
            var txt = inputOptions[i][1];
            oTag.setTag("option"); 
            oTag.setAttribute( "value", val ); 
            oTag.setContent("text",inputOptions[i][1]); 		
            if ( text==txt )
            {
                oTag.setAttribute( "selected","true" ); 
            } 
            optionsHTML.push( oTag ); 
        } 
        
        return optionsHTML.join(""); 
    }); 

    // template variable provides temporary reference 
    // to the parent template during edit mode. 
    var template; 

    function switchToEditMode()
    {
        template = this; 
        template.element().style.padding = 0; 
        template.element().innerHTML = editor; 
        editor.element().focus(); 
    } 

    obj.setEvent("ondblclick", switchToEditMode); 

    function switchToTextMode()
    { 
        var originalText = template.getItemProperty("text");
        var value = editor.element().value; 
        var selectedIndex = editor.element().selectedIndex;
        var text = editor.element().options[selectedIndex].text;

        // we want to compare the text in the grid
        // grid display only the text
        if(originalText != text)
        {
            template.setItemProperty("text", text);
            template.setItemProperty("value", value); 
            if(obj.onChangeEvent)
            {
                obj.onChangeEvent();
            }
        }
        template.refresh(); 
        template = null; 
    }

    obj.onChangeEvent = function()
    {
        // alert("User must override this function to recieve the events");
    }


    editor.setEvent("onblur", switchToTextMode); 
}; 

Prima.Templates.StatusSelect.create();


Override the setValue function and commit the changes to the database

                                // display a message only if the status code is other than 200
                                // alert("Alert status code " + this.getStatus());
                            };
                        };


I do not know if this is the best way to do it. but this is the way I have done it; might give you an idea as well

Thanks

Where is the do i put the code to override the setvalue function? And what is the purpose, it seems to work with just the template in place now.
BTW, thanks for the template. Looks good.
