Custom List

Designer Custom List Input Field

The 'Custom List' input field allows you to let the user make a choice between pre-defined options in the 'Wizard' Add-in. A typical use for the 'Custom List' would be to control if the company logo shall appear in color or black & white.

Name

The Name of the input field will be visible to the User in the 'Wizard' Add-In. Please try to choose a short and meaningful name that can be easily recognized by your users.

Context/Group

The Context/Group will be visible to the User above the Name field in the 'Wizard' Add-In. The user can collapse and expand groups in the 'Wizard' Add-In using the collapse/expand icon to the left of the group name. Try to pick logical group names that can be shared among multiple input fields providing the user with a logical understanding of all your input fields. Group names could be something like From, To, Document, etc.

Use last input as default

If set to 'On' the Add-In will remember the user’s last input/selection and automatically apply the user’s last input/selection for that input field the next time the 'Wizard' Add-In runs the first time for each specific document. This will only work for input fields that have the same 'Name', 'Context/Group', and are of the same type, and have set the same attributes.

Label & Value

Each option in a custom list has a «Label» and «Value» entry. The «Label» will be visible to the user as the option he or she can pick. The «Value» will not be visible to the user but can still be used within a calculation of a placeholder value.

To create new entries just press the plus icon at the bottom of the list of all custom list items. To delete an item, click the delete button to the far right of each custom list item. There is no limit in how many items you can have in a custom list. We do though suggest to not go crazy regarding the amount of items per custom list. Preferably a custom list has no more than 7 items.

Default

Once all Custom List items have been created one of the entries can be defined as the default item. This means that this item will automatically be selected as the default value when the Custom List field gets displayed in the «Wizard» Add-in.
