Is there a way to create the drop down options for Input dialog box from a list? For example, I collect all the folder names in a list and the input dialog box enables user to select a folder from the options of all folder names displayed in a dropdown.
Hi Yashasri, welcome!
Yes, there are ways for create drop down options for an input dialog box.
UiPath has these relatively new Forms Activities - Now in Public Preview!
You can build your own form for an input dialog and specify e.g. a drop-down-menu.
You will need the UiPath.Form.Activities package
It might also be possible with the Custom Input activity, but you’ll have to design the form in HTML yourself. Could be a bit more tricky than the Forms Builder.
The problem is that I don’t have admin rights to my system. Any other way to do so?
Is there a way that a Collections List can be used to provide options for a dropdown in input dialog box?
Sure, you can do something like this:
The thing is I would like to collect folder names and display them as options. The options list is dynamic in my use-case I can’t be certain of the options like “Yes”, “No”, etc.
That property can take an array of strings.
I have used path.getfilenames(“xxx”) to collect file names. I want the file names to be displayed as options. Can I give a variable of Sysytems.String type in the options such that I get a dropdown menu with files names?
Yes you can.
Can you please elaborate on the process?
I got it. Thanks for the help.
