Picklist that allows typing in data? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the picklists I see in the CRM 3.0 and ones I have added, the software allows you to select one item, or none (blank). It does not allow typing in other data not listed in the picklist. 


    But, when I select to enter an Activity, Phone Cal, the Duration field (which under attributes say it is an integer?), lists items like

    30 minutes

    45 minutes



    ...picklist style. AND I can type over the "30 minutes"and change it to, say, "3 minutes" which is not in the picklist.


    I don't see any onChange code or other script. How do they do this?  Am asking 'cause I need some custom picklists to do just that: one,none or enter data.

  • Never mind, I found in the "Working with Microsoft Dynamics 3.0 CRM" where they explain that the "Duration" attribute used in several entities is a special attribute and not the standard picklist.
