Not applicable

Static values

Pictures, text, or both pictures and text for the button. Text for the items in the list.


Allows one item to be selected from the list. The value in the field is an integer that corresponds to the position of the last item selected in the list. The items in the list are numbered starting with 1. This control is used as a means of navigation. Its value can’t be stored in a table.

The items in the list are specified by the data type definition or at runtime, using the add item statement. Items added at runtime aren’t saved in the application dictionary; they must be added each time the application is run. The button drop list does not scroll, so the maximum number of items is limited by screen size.

Refer to Button drop lists for more information about using button drop lists.
