UI elements can have different sources of data. You can configure the available options at the level of a pricker control, a property, or a table, depending on your needs.

Property level

Local list
Provides a list of values manually.
Field value
Provides a field value by referring to the class and name of the field value.
Class key value
Provides a field value by referring to the validation class of the field value.
Remote list
Provides values by referring to the class of the property instance, the list or group, localized value, and the keys of instance.
Prompt list
Manually provides a list o values by referring to a standard value and a prompt value name.
Data page
Provides a data page from which you want to source values.

Control level

Property
Gives the end users a limited list of values from which to choose at run time. For example, you can populate a drop-down control with values that are sourced directly from the .EmploymentType property.

For more information, see Creating a property and Referencing properties.

Data page
Accesses data from a range of sources on demand. For example, you can populate a drop-down control with discount options that are sourced from the D_Discounts data page.

For more information, see Data pages overview and Data page reference.

Clipboard page
Sources data from temporary memory of the application or case. You can source the value of a property, a query result of a report definition, or a data page by indicating a particular clipboard page. A clipboard page is used as a source of values to reference dynamic data, such as the insurance offers that are available for particular clients.

For more information, see Clipboard tool.

Report definition
Sources data from a report definition page. For example, you can populate a field with the values of query results from a report definition that returns the number of available vacation days for a particular employee.

For more information, see Report definitions and Creating advanced reports.

Table level

Property
Sources data from a property. For example, when you have a case flow that first collects details of the vehicles to insure, and then sends the same details to agents, you can use the property which holds the list of vehicles to populate the vehicles table.
Report definition
Sources data from a database table.
Data page
Retrieves data from third-party systems or caches data.
