A select component in a table row?

Hi there,

Is it possible to have a drop down field in a table row?

I.e. when user double clicks to edit - they can choose an option from a drop down menu?

hope to hear,
thanks. Neil

Hey Neil!
There is a column type literally called dropdown :-).

Hope this helps!

Hi Jonathan,
Thanks for your answer - sorry, I should have been clearer.
It doesn't really behave like a drop down - it's like a 'tag' - not a proper dropdown, like the rest of the app.......

I'd quite like to create a choice of items (from a query) - much like the rest of my dropdowns, and how the 'traditional dropdown' behaves in retool.

Hi @maillme,

Have you made this tag/dropdown column editable? That should allow you to enable traditional dropdown choices

Hi Tess,
thanks - functionally, that seems to work...... two questions though;

  1. Is there any way we can just take away this 'tag-like' styling?
  2. Is there a way to get options in this menu from another query (and not just from what is displayed in the table?).... even just a point in the right direction to this would help.....

Hi @maillme

The tag settings should have an option to select from any query or Javascript code (under Data Source).

You can also set the tag color to none if you want to remove the styling
