Watch the following video to learn how to get the most out of your select type inputs using the different visual settings:
Since this input creates a drop-down list, it works only with a limited number of possible values. To populate the list with values, click the input title bar and enter the values in the Aggregation Task field by clicking Edit. You can populate the Select input list in a couple of ways:
By entering a fixed list of values. Below you can see the syntax you must use to populate the list with different values:
["a", "b", "c", "d"]
Using a query. Below you can see how the query used in the Aggregation Task field of the input retrieves the values in the statusCode column.
query( from demo.ecommerce.data group by statusCode)
By default, you can only switch between the different values you have entered. To deselect a value and return to a neutral state, simply click on the drop-down list and hit the Esc key.
