Hi Daniel,

I've adapted your code but struggling with something. Unsure if this is a wishlist question as I've already done 95% of the work.

I'm creating custom pages for users using drag & drop. The pages allow for DnD modules for different layouts.

What I've done is added a field and row to database called width. Purpose of this is to allow users to select the width of the dropped modules.

The part I'm having difficulty with is page:

/public_html/components/com_notes/views/note/tmp/default.php

See below code as example. Is this something you can assist with or is there another site you suggest I can look at which maybe able to help me.

The line "<?php echo $this->form->getInput('width'); ?>" - returns the current value of the width from the record in question.

Thanks

Stephen

        </li>

Sorry Daniel,

Question is how to add a drop-down list to Cnotes using existing code.

I've already worked it out for the initial adding of note.

I'll send you a private message with URL

Hey Stephen,
I'm really sorry, but I still don't understand what your question is.
i went to your site, in the module I see the dropdown field, so I'm not sure what you want to do?

The data is not saving in the database or what?

Hi Daniel,

I can get the data to save in the database but only as a text field - I do not know how to get the drop-down to work on the page to edit an existing entry. I know it must be something really easy for you to do. I can not get the drop-down to work to save - but I can get it to save from the text box. Where and what do I need to change to get drop-down to work when editing an existing record?
