Picklists in Honeycode function just like dropdown menus. They're easy to build and make for a snappy user experience.
To build a picklist, you will have to add rowlinks. Rowlinks and picklists go hand-in-hand. It’s a concept that’s easiest to grok when you see them side-by-side. Let’s check out the relationship:
- A rowlink is a format that stores an entire row of data in a single cell.
- A picklist enables you to limit which table rows are stored in the cell.
Builder tip: In your apps, a rowlink is rendered as a UI dropdown menu. In Honeycode, we refer to this as a picklist.
In Builder, you can format a data cell as a rowlink—the process is similar to what you’d do in tables. Rowlinks are always rendered as picklists in your app’s UI.
Click on a data cell to open the properties panel on the right.
Go the Display tab.
Format the selection as: Rowlink.
Set your source.
Format your data cell as a rowlink (see steps 1-4 above).
Check the Editable box above to allow app users to select options from a picklist (dropdown menu).
