The DropDownList component has a selectedItem property that is supposed to return a ListBase.
But what I want is just the "String" that is supposed to be the selected Item in the DropDownList.
How can I read this value?
You are misreading the documentation. ListBase.selectedItem returns an Object. This object comes directly out of your data provider, so you just have to cast and/or go for whatever property you need.
Thank, yes, I realized that right after I posted my question -:)
I casted the selectedItem property to String and voila.
