    Default Make importable drop-down box in reporting tool

    Background
    For its outstanding advantages, drop-down box is common in data input interface. However, usually it is only for selection. If drop-down box can be used for both selection and data input, it will be more useful.


    Difficulty
    To make importable drop-down box, difficulties below need to be solved.
    1. Make a drop-down box which can be used for both selection and input.
    2. Judge user's input is display value or truth value.
    3. If user's input is display value, it needs to be matched to corresponding truth value.
    4. Add a switch used to decide whether users are allowed to input a new value.
    5. For multiple choices, it needs to provide controls like empty and check all.


    Solution
    According to users' requirements in real business, RAQ Report provides a complete set of drop-down boxes. With RAQ Report, the only thing users need to do is checking needed options in the properties box of edit style.
