I like to call web WebPublisher's out-of-the-box data entry "plain vanilla" to set it apart from what we can do with ASP.NET. I just added some chocolate swirl to WebPublisher.PlainVanilla:
- Made it possible to have dropdowns in a web edit form.
- The dropdowns are dynamically populated with the field's validation list on page load.
- If editing an existing record, the field's value is selected in the list on load, or is added to the option list if not found there already.
Ah, the wonders of AJAX.
