Selection Lists

Selection list allows the user to select values from a pre-defined set of values (usually a table).

In this set of articles we will learn how to:

  1. Create a selection list controller
  2. Set the allowed activities of a controller
  3. Learn about the AllowSelect
  4. Pass the parameter
  5. Determine which row should the program park on
  6. Use the Expand event
  7. Use a generic SelectionList utility

For this example, let's create a SelectShippers controller that will allow the user to select a shipper from the shippers entity. Basically we can start with a regular UIController class that uses the shippers entity as its main table and place the ShipperID and CompanyName columns on the view.
