Yes/No Data type rendering as radio buttons instead of a dropdown

Hi All,
In 2.23 the Yes/No option are rendered as radio buttons instead of the normal dropdown. After some research i found that it’s a known bug in 2.22 and it seems like this has not been fixed. If that’s the case is there a work around to get back the dropdown menu? The option with the radio button has "NO VALUE " option, Is there way to remove that option?

Hi Ibrahim,

we do intentionally display yes/no data elements as radio-buttons. The reason is it will save a click compared to the drop-down.

The reason for the “no value” option is that one always need to be able to remove a value (yes or no) if it was entered by mistake.

regards,

Lars
