In the Display values area, you have the ability to show multiple values in the drop-down list, separating them with a freely selectable separator.

Values from References

With the Values from references setting, references can be selected from the current application or other applications as sources for the entries in the drop-down list. The settings are essentially the same as the settings in the drop-down list for Values from applications.

““ Entries that stem from other data groups than the current one, or from other applications, cannot be saved. For this reason, a data field also cannot be connected. On the Data field tab, only the setting for no link can be selected in this case.

User-defined values are values that do not stem from a data source, but rather are entered statically.

Select the desired Data Type of the saved Value.

By clicking on Add new user-defined value, a new value can be created.

With Delete user-defined value, the highlighted entry will be removed. With Edit user-defined value, the selected value can be edited. You can change the order of the entries with the Arrow buttons.
