DroidDB Tip of the Month

DroidDB® Tip for November 2017

Ordering Items in a Dropdown

When you populate a dropdown using values from another table, the options are sorted alphabetically. But it is possible to specify some other order.

Say the items in your list are:

  • banana
  • apple
  • grapes
When the drop down displays them, they'll end up as:
  • apple
  • banana
  • grapes
If you want them in the original order, change the list itmes to:
  • 001 banana
  • 002 apple
  • 003 grapes

Top rated! I needed a solid database application development tool for mobile devices. I chose DroidDB for Android OS because it provided a way to get a strong product to market quickly. DroidDB is relational, gives me control over form layout, handles macros, and supports events. It works on all Android versions I have tried and is a great companion product to SYWARE’s VisualCE.
