DropDown aka Select

Question asked by manoki on Dec 1, 2011

Hello,

i have a simple process with 2 tasks, activiti 5.8. the first is a service task, which gets a list of values (ie. cities) from a server. in the second task, the user choose one of them (as his living place). the service task was no problem, but i run into big trouble with the user interface: as known from webpages, i want to have a select box (drop down). the only option i found in the documentation is enum. but enums need predefined static list of values, my list of cities might change with the service task result.

what is the best way to solve this? i already figured out 2 options: new form type implementation or external form rendering. are there other?
i am looking for a easy understandable solution, cause i am an absolute beginner.

thanks

manoki
