Can we bind dropdown to a infotable without datashape?

Hi Team,

 

Can we bind dropdown to a infotable without datashape? If so how?

Is datashape required for all the widgets to bind on?

The only widget that I know that can take an infotable without a datashape is the Grid.

What is your challenge that you don't know the datashape

Re: Can we bind dropdown to a infotable without datashape?

So we can create n no. of datashapes if there are  n no. of services that returns infotables 

 

I hope there is nothing memory impact of datashapes as they are comparable to types in java

Correct also if you execute the service and it returns an infotable (without needing a DataShape initially to construct it) Thingworx gives you the option to create a DataShape based on the result.

Creating a large number of DataShapes shouldn't be an issue.

With large I'm thinking 10,000 or less.

What dropdown are you trying to use? Like a List widget dropdown?

Where is your infotable coming from? If it's a property, it has to have a datashape.
