List of values management

In the Table and Record View Portlets, there is a possibility to use a List of Values (a drop-down list with a set of predefined values) when you create or edit a record directly in the Portlet. The List of Values will then define what a user can enter in a specific field.

The List of Values can also take an input, so that the list could be filtered depending of an existing value in the current record.

What the list of values are to contain is defined here.

Name - Select a name in the list to display the list settings to the right in the Definition window.
