combo box form

Hi

how can i create a combo box (selection field) with five selection items using custom data entry forms.

I can create the selection list but is not get saved in the database.

Discussed this with Lungo - we ended up using option sets in custom
forms in the anonymous data entry ui.

I must take a look at this anonymous data entry ui. Still can't help
thinking this would have been neatly solved with a selection from
category and datavalue of 1.

In this case they want client satisfactory surveys which can happen at
any frequency / multiple times per day per facility. Problem then
becomes the fixed period selection in routine data entry - the next
will overwrite the previous.

OK I see. So this couldn't be saved as a standard datavalue with a
period id. I guess this problem is more about notions of time period
than about representation of the data - which could be represented as
datavalue='1' + categoryoptioncombo=?.

Anyway .. just thinking out loud about representing survey data on
forms (particularly categorical data) in general. I suppose this kind
of data could conceivably appear in routine data as well.

Yes it could... but sometimes the next problem is how do you aggregate
it. If 5 clients said "great", 3 said "decent" and 2 said "crap" then
what is the aggregate province value for the data element? This is
were the anonymous events and beneficiary aggregation are helpful -
you can create data elements "clients who said it was great", "clients
who said it was crap", "total clients" etc, map the case-based data
onto those elements and then make useful indicators and statistics out
of it.
