Picker controls is disabled in K2 Five smartform

Jump to solution

I created a smartform with picker control.

 

While rendering in the smartform page picekr control was disabled. 

 

Note : i checked in the design , control is enabled and also not in read only mode .

 

Whether do i need to give any data source in the picker control.

Unfortunately I can't see your screen shots.  I have never tried to use a picker control without a data source, but I think it makes sense it would be disabled.  The whole reason for a picker control's existence is to let the user search a data source and return the selected value.  You can choose so search columns that have meaning to the user, yet return a different value like a code or foreign key that has meaning to the application.  Without a data source, the picker control wouldn't have much functionality.

You can find complete documentation onall the controls in the product help pages.  Here is the picker control topic which covers using a data source:
