About the Originating Applet of a Dynamic Picklist

The important child object definitions of the originating applet are the following:

  • Originating control. Invokes the pick applet, as the result of the user's clicking the drop-down arrow. The originating control has the name of the pick applet in its Pick Applet property. The field specified in the Field property of the originating control is the originating field, and has pick map child object definitions, as discussed in About the Originating Business Component of a Dynamic Picklist.

    The control or list column must have its Runtime property set to TRUE.

  • Controls populated by the pick applet. Each control for which some field in the originating business component is populated by a pick map object definition will be updated when the user makes a selection from the pick applet.
  • Controls unrelated to the pick applet. Other controls in the applet.
