    Hi,
    In the plugin section of the user manual is the instructions for setting up the XML/JS for drop down fields.

    But, there’s no instructions for retrieving/defining those options for use in the Provide function.

    I know for fields you should use like this:

    var myCheckbox = block.getFieldValue(‘myCheckbox’) === ‘TRUE’;

    That’s Boolean.

    I have:

    const myDropdown = block.getFieldValue(‘myDropdown’);
    And console log shows its value.

    However, when I go to use whatever option, I get error undefined.

    How do we go about defining each menu option?

    Could the staff add that please?
    And possibly give a tip here?
    Thanks! :good:

    i found that i had to get the boolean result of each option before my provide fundction,
    ie:

    let option1 = block.getFieldValue(‘myDropdown’) === “OPTION1”;

    let option2 = block.getFieldValue(‘myDropdown’) === “OPTION2”;

    let option3 = block.getFieldValue(‘myDropdown’) === “OPTION3”;

    then pass those option1,2,3 as vars through the provide ( and the return)

    then within the provide function


    let myDropdown;

    if (option1 == true){
    myDropdown = ‘myText1’;
    }
    else if (option2 == true){
    myDropdown = ‘myText2’;
    }
    else if (option3 == true){
    myDropdown = ‘myText3’;
    }
    console.log(‘myDropdown: ‘,myDropdown);

    possibly there’s a more efficient way of doing it, but this works.
    i had to get a “definition” to the ‘myText’ i was using
