Import list when creating Pick Field

I am using Integrity 9 and was curious if you can import a list when creating a pick list field? I have about 240 entries to enter into the pick list.

Anthony,

There is not a built in way to import a list through the GUI when setting up a picklist. There is however the equivelent CLI command that can be very easy to format in an external text editor with your existing list into a command that will set up your pick list how you want.

The basic syntax is:

im createfield --name=<fieldname>--type=pick --picks=<text:value:image>,<text:value:image>...

A working example is:

im createfield --name=picklist1 --type=pick --picks=one:1:none,two:2:none,three:3:none

There are of course, many more options you can set for a pick list field, this is just the basics. The full list of options and syntax is on page 54 of the Admin CLI Reference guide - http://www.ptc.com/WCMS/files/143545/en/AdminCLIReference_2009SP7.pdf

Also, remember when adding values on the CLI, any entries with spaces need to be put in quotes.

Hi

It is possible by command line. (I've already done this with MKS2007)

You can set picklist values with :

im editfield --picks==$pickstr fieldname

Note: pickstr is something like '4.1':0,'4.1.0':1,'4.1.2':2,'4.1.3':3,'4.1.4':: value starts with 0.

If you want to add elements without changing the order of existing ones, you will need to read before the picklist value with a im viewfield command.

HTH
