Custom Dropdown List
The user defined dropdown box is useful to customize your checkout. For example, you could create a user defined dropdown called “How did you hear about us” with dropdown values of Internet, Yellow Pages, or Referral. The option selected by the user in the dropdown during checkout is stored in the database for reference at a later time. The custom dropdown box will not be displayed to the user unless the checkbox is checked.
Show Dropdown – When enabled, a custom dropdown box will be displayed in Step 1 of the checkout.
Dropdown Label – The Dropdown label is the label that shows up in the checkout to the left of the custom dropdown box.
Dropdown Datasource – There are two options available for configuring the values in the dropdown; User entered Values and User entered SQL.
User entered values – When you select user entered values you will be able to type the values entered directly into the dropdown values textbox.
User entered SQL – When you select user entered SQL you will be using the native DNN Lists to populate the values in the dropdown. If you are not familiar with DNN Lists feature, login as host and navigate to the hosts – lists menu where you will be able to create your custom list. Once you have built your list using the DNN lists feature then you can enter a simple SQL statement to query the list and populate the datasource for your custom dropdown box.
