drop down value different from item - Post ID 275455
Can you have the value sent to the database be different than the item name displayed in the drop down list?
I wanted to create my drop down in a text file and load it with the predefined options selector and I was hoping that there was a symbol or separator that could be used to differentiate the displayed item name from the value sent to the db.
In settings, if I don't choose the drop down value for the notifications email, then I shouldn't have a conflict there.
(I am using "required" as well.)
Hope I'm making sense.
Three options that I can think of to get what you want.
1. Alter the form dropdown html and validation after export.
2. Use a hidden element that gets submitted with help from Jquery if a particular drop down option is chosen.
3. Use a script to alter the value in the database after being submitted.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
