I am quite new to VMWare orchestrator, and I try to perform a task that seems simple, but which is driving me crazy because I do not seem to figure out how to do it from the documentation: I have created a dropdown-element using two constant String Values to select from. All I want to do is to bind the value the user selected (or the dropdown index alternatively) to a variable, which I can pass to a scriptable task to be used there for further processing.
I already figured out that if you create a simple Input variable, then it automatically creates an input textbox, but nothing similar is available for a dropdown box. So how can selections from a dropdown element be bound to a variable?
This is vRO 8, right?
How exactly did you create this dropdown? Something like the following should work:
That's all, now you should be able to use the selected value from the dropdown in your scripting code.
Thank you so much, I was basically missing point 3, i.e. that I could switch the appearance type. I tried the other way round, create a Dropdown-Item, and had no way to bind it to a variable.
From a new user perspecttive, this was hard to figure out, but your hint helped perfectly! 🙂
