Picker controls

Updated on November 15, 2021

Picker controls present the user with a number of options from which to choose the value of a field. For example, the Dropdown control displays a list of possible choices in an expandable drop-down box.

  • Adding an Autocomplete control

    Use an Autocomplete control to allow the user to select a value from a possibly large set of searched text values, based on a partial string match. Pega Platform dynamically assembles and displays a list of candidate matching values after the user types one or a few characters of input.

  • Multi-select list controls

    When constructing a user form, you can add a Multi-select list control to make it possible for the application's users to select more than one value for a single field. These lists save time and ensure accuracy by supplying a list of valid values for an input field.

  • Adding a Checkbox control

    Check boxes present a user with an option or a list of options, from which the user can make a single selection. A cell in a layout can present a property as a TrueFalse type using a Checkbox( pxCheckbox ) control.

  • Adding a Drop-down control

    Use the Dropdown control to display a list of options, from which the user can select a single option. The list of options can be defined in a list bound to a property, or a clipboard page, a data page, or a report definition.

  • Adding a Radio Button control

    In your application, radio button controls present a horizontal or vertical list of options, from which a user can select a single option.

  • Adding an Anypicker control

    Enhance navigation in your application by grouping drop-down list items into expandable categories in the Anypicker control. For example, if your business operates in several cities, use this control to group business locations by region and to help your users quickly select the right option in a drop-down list.
