Dynamic entry list - Use Value as input to WS
I have a Dynamic Entry list, which displays the text, I would however like to store its value, so that I could use it as input for the Web service.
Any ideas, how that can be done?
If I understand you correctly, you are interested only in the field fullName, and not in the field contactId. If this is the case, you can simply choose contactId for both Text and Value in the outputs tab of the entry list editor. This means that fullName will be used both as the text in the drop down (that the end user sees) and as the value of the field contact, to which the entry list is bound.
If, however, your intention was to use both contactId and fullName, then unfortunately there is no good way to do this in SP5. We are aware of the need for this ability, and it has been included in a future version. If this is what you need, you might be able to use a delimiter and string concatenation in order to put both fields in the Value.
I'm hoping that one of these two answers can help you.
