A static picklist is a list of predefined values that the user invokes from a field in an applet. When the user clicks the drop-down arrow to the right of the field, a single-column picklist appears. The user selects a value from the list, and then clicks Save to enter the value for the field. The values in the picklist are predefined by an administrator or developer and stored in the list of values table.
A picklist can be bounded or unbounded. A bounded picklist allows the user to select values from the list only. An unbounded picklist allows users to select values from the list or type values directly into the field.
A static picklist is a selection list that is invoked from a particular text box or list column in an applet. A static picklist in a Siebel application is shown in Figure 73.
When the user clicks the drop-down button to the right of the text box, a single-column picklist appears. The user selects a value from the list by clicking the desired value. The selected value replaces the previous value in the text box.
For more information about dynamic picklists, see About Dynamic Picklists.
Static picklists are implemented using object types illustrated in Figure 74.
Figure 75 shows the object types used in the implementation of a static picklist in greater detail, and identifies their interrelationships.
The roles of the object definitions in Figure 75 are summarized in the following list, and discussed in greater detail in the subsequent sections. The static picklist example refers to the Quality picklist illustrated in Figure 73.
