Sorry for the confusion. The drop-down in my table has values and captions that I entered at runtime. When I ran a Connect to populate the table, it would select the correct value in the drop-down for each row, but only in Debug. Nothing would be selected in Preview.
However, as I was creating a very simple form to send to show you what I was experiencing, I found my problem. My connection action returns both School Code and School Name. In my Connect behavior, I was trying to set the “all rows” for both the value AND the caption of the drop-down column. If I just set the value item, it works fine in Preview and Debug.\
Sorry again for all the confusion!
Ah, that was much easier than I was making it. Thanks, Dennis!June 4, 2014 at 3:24 pm in reply to: Drop-down in table not being set by Connect behavior in HTML version #7141
So back to my original question: Why aren’t the drop-downs in my table being set in Preview but they are set in Debug?June 3, 2014 at 12:56 pm in reply to: Drop-down in table not being set by Connect behavior in HTML version #7135
Thanks, Dennis. We do host on premise, and our application server and Connection Agent are on one machine, and the database is on another. What do I need to do in that case?June 2, 2014 at 1:42 pm in reply to: Drop-down in table not being set by Connect behavior in HTML version #7132
Thanks for the reply, Dennis. Can you explain to me why the Connection Agent has to go out to your servers just so we can load data from our local database?September 16, 2013 at 2:47 pm in reply to: Integration with Google Calendar (or any other calendar) #6763
Thanks for the info, Dennis.
What’s the purpose of having the “Time Slot” form open a new instance? Why not just do it all in the one instance?
Thanks, Dennis. Usually when that happens I get an SQL error saying “unable to convert varchar to numeric” or the like. I’ll look at what’s being sent to the DB and see if there’s a type mismatch somewhere, though.
I’ve found the problem. The Connect behavior is an calling an UPDATE action. When the user enters a percent sign (‘%’) in one of the Text Input fields that is part of the UPDATE, the error occurs. Sounds like a bug in the Connection Agent. How do we get around this, aside from not entering percent signs in our form?
Thanks, Dennis. Haven’t received anything yet but I’ll keep an eye out for it.January 26, 2013 at 12:40 am in reply to: Changing form instance stage after it’s hit the end of the workflow #6385
Ah, good plan. Thanks, Dennis!
Thanks, Dennis. Do I put in a request through the support form?
Dennis, do you know the ETA for 2.2? We’ve been holding off updating to 2.1 because we thought 2.2 was almost ready, but if it’s going to be a while we’ll upgrade to 2.1 so we can use some of those enhancements.

Thanks, Dennis, I’ll give that a shot!
Dennis, do you know if dynamic states on table columns is on the PerfectForms roadmap? That would be helpful to us as well, as would dyanamically generating a drop-down list that is a table column.
Here’s a quick-and-dirty test form I came up with that will sort number or date columns in a table:
Just click the + button on the table on the left to add rows with random numbers and dates, then click either of the Sort buttons to sort them in the table on the right. I haven’t figured out a way to sort strings yet.
