Extension Properties (QVPP) issue


I am trying to customize the QVPP file for one of my extension.

There is no issue in adding a new Select field in Definition.XML and properties.qvpp.

However, I see the issue in the extension dialog box.

whenever I select some value from the newly added dropdown, selection gets cleared when i come out of web view mode and select the web view mode again.

Can anyone help me out to figure out what is the issue.


<Text Type="select" Select="Arial,Calibri,Verdana" SelectLabel="Arial,Calibri,Verdana"/>


<select style='width:40%;' avq='mySelect:.Chart.Text.0.Content'>

  <option value='Arial'>Arial</option>

  <option value='Calibri'>Calibri</option>

  <option value='Verdana'>Verdana</option>

Re: Extension Properties (QVPP) issue

This is probably a little late but for those that come across this post in the future it has been answered in a related discussion:

HTML Select in Extensions

Just add the suggested JavaScript snippet to your Script.js and you should be good to go.

Hope that helps!
