"Dropdown lists"


          

I want to include the Component field on my solosubmit webpage;However, the field type is a dropdown list. I would like our customer to see the dropdown list but also have the option to type in a new item. Is there any way that this field can accomodate both scenarios.

This would not be possible from Solosubmit, with the default component field.

The reason is that adding new Component items is considered and Admin level function, and Solosubmit has no concept of login or security, so it cannot be used to add non dropdown field types.

What you can do is create a custom field called Component and make it an Edit box. In Solosubmit you can hard code a combo-box with a drop down field selection and a free-form text entry selection (like we do with Version field which is a combo-box). This would allow the Solosubmit users to select from a drop down or enter free form text, however inside TestTrack Pro users would have to manually type in the component. Of course you could always have 2 component fields.
