Initailize Drop Down Box with first value

Hi there,

I have created a drop down box for user to select a role to run a dashboard. Instead of displaying "Show All Values" or <blank> as the inital value of the drop down box, I wonder if it is possible to populate the first role value in it?

Hope to have an answer soon. Points will be awarded. Thanks

Heres the XHTML code

<bi:TEXT_ITEM name="TEXT_ITEM_1" designheight="39" designwidth="106" webitem="ZWEB_ROLE_LABEL" >
                                <bi:TEXT_BINDING type="CHOICE" value="TEXT_CONTENT" >
