Decode a picklist field value in a #PRIM_LIST Column

Post by dvanoni » Wed Mar 23, 2016 5:15 pm

Hi all,

is it possible to decode the value of a field that has a picklist with its related caption in a #PRIM_List Column?

I mean I have a field with a picklist in its definition. When I use a #PRIM_GRID component I can define a #PRIM_GDCL with the property "Usepicklist" set to "True" value and the field as a source. In this way the value of the field is automatically decoded to its related caption.

Is there a similar way to do this with a #PRIM_List column?

Prim_list does not support Field Visualization in the way that Grid does.

You can however make a very simple reusable part to reproduce the functionality.
