I edited one of the existing lists 'Countries.txt' so that United States is listed first, but when I re-opened a form (in Web Form Builder Lite), US wasn't listed first.

Did you remember to save it.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

re : using the dropdownlist for restaurant-reservations purposes.

Hello , in the Flash version ( awesome version in my opinion ) I use the dropdownlist to enter the free dates which a client can choose to come and eat in my restaurant ( like january 1st, january 2nd , january 3d etc etc ) I do this very simply by making a list with dates in Word, then copy-ing and pasting it directly into the " Configure menu Items " area of the dropdownlist. Piece a cake !

Do I understand it correctly that in this new version of the Webformbuilder, I have to go all the way into

C:\Documents and Settings[NAME]\My Documents\CoffeeCup Software\Web Form Builder\options-list

to actually update or change the list with dates ?

Or is their a more simple way of entering these dates into the dropdownlist. ? ( they are updated daily )

See my actual webform here :
http://www.parkrestaurant.be/bookingUK.html

have a look under "available date & hours" to have a better idea of what I mean.

Thanking you in advance

Axel

Your correct. I either type or copy and paste some existing data into notepad and save it to that directory. You can create a shortcut on your desktop to that directory.:cool:

Hi Axel

You can do it inside webform builder.
Select your drop down list and go to properties, and in the right side panel you will see what is on my attached picture. (Your text will of course be different)

Double click on the text you want to edit.
The + sign adds a new option and the - sign deletes the selected.
With the two arrows you can move the selected up or down.

Hello Scott, Thank you for your info about these dropdownlists and how you can make your own.

I have figured this out by now and it helps.

However, when I want to replace or update an existing dropdownlist ( in my case : bookingdates , see
http://www.parkrestaurant.be/bookingIPAD.html )

the new list of available dates is added to the existing list of available dates.

In fact , it should REPLACE the old list, and not be added at the end of the old list.

Removing the remaining old dates from the list manually ( deleting them one by one with the "minus" sign ) is an impossible job, because webform reacts so extremely slow on my ( well equipped gaming ) pc that it would take hours to remove those entries one by one.

It would be handy to be able to highlight multiple entries of the dropdownlist and then delete them with one click on the "minus" button.

Thanks for looking in to this
