Solved

I have trying to ad a conditional Drop-Down list for the Iphone widgets, But It doesn ́t work.


I followed, step by step the tutorial and is impossible. I did the same with the web page widgets and It worked perfect.... So I think there ́s a problem with the Iphone widgets......

I did everything like the tutorial, in bouth cases.


But when I did it with Iphone widgets It didn ́t work. When I change one drop-down list expecting this to change the values from the other one, the values from the first one change instead of the second....

Dou you mind to send us your prototype (".vp" file) to jim.support@justinmind.com in order to figure out where's the problem or what did you wrong?

Hi - I experienced the same incorrect results when attempting to use the "iPad" widget drop down.


Multiple attempts had the same incorrect results described by Camilia V, then using widget "Select List" worked per tutorial.


If you you compare the "Select List" widget to the respective "iphone" and "iPad" dropdown widgets you will see a functional difference (not just cosmetic).


FYI, wasted an hour on this one.


Thank you,

You are right There are some differences between 'Select List' widget and iPhone and iPad 'Dropdown' widgets. Select List widget is easier to use than the other two. iPhone or iPad dropdown is like a group composed of three elements, image, label and category. So, if you want to edit values of the dropdown in the properties panel, you actually need to select category. Same goes when creating an expression. You have to drag and drop just the category part of the dropdown to the expression builder, and not the entire drop down group.

Hi John - Thanks for the above. I believe I found another issue w/'conditional drop down from Select List widget'...after creating the conditional drop down as a Master, all parts of the event will copy to other screens EXCEPT the values for the second drop down. Means, they have to be recreated for each screen. Am I missing something?


Thanks,
