This example shows you how to use the operator "TIS Board - Selection list for editable data table" in the "TIS Board"

First you need 2 tables one will be the table you want and the other one will be the "drop down menu" itself.

Menu table

And the click on "TIS Board"

Now a blue plus sign should pop up.

Please click on the plus sign to create a new portlet.

After connecting to the "TIS Board" please select you project then your data source then "Editable Grid" and click on apply.

Now we want to click on the column that we want to edit later with the drop down menu in our case it is the "Boss" column.

Then we scroll all the way down the "portlet properties"

We click on the drop down menu and select "Dynamic list".

Click on select:

and we select the data node of our menu table.

Now if we click at any row in our "Boss" column we are able to see the menu. But we are not able to interact with it, because we need to save it first.

To save the portlet click on save and select a folder that you want the portlet to be saved in.

Now you need to create a page by clicking on the left side in the "Pages" tab and select "New page".

Name you page and save it.

Now click on select a portlet and select our portlet.
