Hey guys, new member here.
So i have a form page with some dynamic dropdowns. I’ve successfully bonded the dropdown to my data array data source.
The challenge for me is how to dynamically specify which option to initially set the dropdown to.
I only see an option for using index to set the initial value. This doesn’t work for my case because i’m not storing the index in my database but the values.
e.g on my page a user can select an option from the dropdown and save that page. The selected value will be stored in the database. If the user comes to that page to edit the form i want the dropdown to show the previously selected option.
I know i could save the dropdown’s option index value in my database but the problem is that these options can change, i.e. that application can add and remove options in the dropdown so this approach wont work.
For bubble users i’m just looking for a way to set the initial value of a dropdown dynamically the way bubble does it.
