Portal dropdown field - many values - best solution RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to do a dropdown menu which should contain at least 100 (company names) values. What is best way to do that? It should be quite easily upgradeble and should also give a good user experience.

    Or should I think a whole new resource for that?

  • I would bet for new resource type in FIM for that as static list in RCDC is rather not easy and straightforward. So another resource would be the best here in my opinion.

    User then can just pick the right value not from drop down, but from popup (as you pick for example manager).

  • I agree, create a custom resource and use a UocIdentityPicker to allow the user to browse/select the appropriate value.

    You can then maintain this list by creating/deleting objects like you would users or other resources in the portal - you could even delegate who maintains that to appropriate users/departments without the need for them to alter XML/RCDCs etc. etc.
