DropDownDataWindow value incorrectly selected

When the user makes a selection in the DropDownDataWindow, the value in the first row will always be automatically selected. However, after this has happened, the DataWindow will proceed to function properly.

Cause: The DropDownDataWindow has not been assigned an initial value.

Solution: Either of these two solutions will rectify the problem.

  • Try to select the value for a second time and the value displayed will be the value you specified.

  • Assign an initial value to the DropDownDataWindow in the PowerBuilder application.
