Saving a custom enumeration in RTC with no default value

Simon Mayell (2677) | asked Jan 16 '13, 6:42 a.m.
We are using RTC with a new work item to manage contracts for segments of work. As a result there are a number of enumerations and these enumerations are mandatory going into certain states. However for each of these enumeration we have to assign a default value in order to save the enumeration before adding it to the presentation.

However when the process is utilised by end users we want to ensure that the mandatory enumeration fields have no default value and therefore a value is selected such that users do not skip the process. Is this possible?

Hi Simon,
When configuring your enumeration, you can set the Unassigned Literal to the same literal as your Default Literal.  This means that the default really represents an unassigned value, so, if the enumeration is required, the user will have to select some other literal.

Thanks for your reply. That has solved the problem. So the unassigned value/default value can no longer be selected and saved. We have created a new data option in each enumeration to act as the unassigned and default value called "please fill in" so the users have to select one of the other options when saving.

Thanks again.

I'm happy that's working for you!
