Prefill user input textboxes

Hi everybody,

 

I have an workflow which should write a CIFS share comment with an user input variable.
The Input variable should be presented to the user and prefilled with the current share comment.
Is there any way to set the input variable to the given value?

 

currently I am using a combo box with an query which works just fine with one exception.
After entering text and te combo box looses focus the entered text vanishes.
So this is not very user friendly.

 

Thanks in advance

Post a screen cap of the the inputs you are currently providing.

Re: Prefill user input textboxes

setup -> user inputs -> double click on share comment variable -> fill up the default value

 

you can also have the default inside the variable in the command like

 

'this is the default' + $share_comment_input

Attached you'll see a screenshot of the user interface I'll try to create.

 

The comboboxes are prefilled using queries. After changing the value an losing the focus the combobox deletes the input.

 

Any suggestions how I can create another behaviour?

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Prefill user input textboxes

Could you please try re-entering the value after it removes the data you enter?

Atually wih combobox we are able to enter the value other than the one which is there in prefilled list.

Also could you please mention how doyou  move out of the combobox by pressing enter/by pressing tab.

After re-entering the value it stays there.

Using enter deletes the value and tab does the same.


 

Thanks.

Hi,

   Go back to the field again and enter the value.

Steps:

1) Type some new value other that what ever appears in drop down
2) Press tab/enter to move to next input, it will remove the above typed value.

3) Again place the cursor to step 2 field and enter the same value.

4) Now the value will be retained.

 

Please try the above steps and let us know.

 

Thanks and Regards
