I have a control panel with several comboboxes and textfields in which the user can enter values to search in specific datasources. The comboboxes are based on datasources.

When i start the control panel, the comboboxes are always empty. However, they should always show the first value from their datasource.

How can i do that?

Kind regards, Jan Willem Vermeer

Hi Jan,

You can use api_component.setValue API's and set a value for the combobox. If I am not mistaken the combobox tag also has a value attribute which you can use to set an initial value. Make sure you assign the value code to the component not the display value.

Kind Regards,

Thanks Yalim. Indeed there is a value attribute and that solves my problem. KR JW
