The lookup allows for a dynamic filter - which allows you to filter a lookup based on grid fields. This feature would be really nice to have in a dropdown.
Many users now use SQL with a single connection string. So, on the Web Project Profiles property sheet, add a General option to default to AlphaDAO and that connection string. Now, property sheets for dropdowns and edit combos default to DBF. They should default to AlphaDAO and the named connection string.
When you add action js for example to open a grid a "Open grid genie" comes up and all components are shown. If that view of components could be limited to just grids we could move faster. Same idea for dialog,custom component etc
There are numerous places in A5's application where I need to select a table or view from my database.
Currently, it seems to always be done via a standard dropdown, and I have to scroll thru my many many tables/views.
It would be lovely if I could filter that list by typing a few letters, and then choose the table/view that I need.
