(This was also posted on the official MC2 site, but also posting here for completeness and to maximize the audience.)

I've developed an admin to do some name lookups with passed-in parameters, which ultimately get returned to the calling form.  This works well.

The form uses a drop down box to allow the users to select a name.  I'd use a list box, but only one name can be selected / returned and since a list box allows multiple values to be selected this doesn't fit the need.

Is there a way to get the drop down box to automatically "open" (drop down) when the form is opened?  This would, from a user visual perspective, display the options to the user without having to click the drop down list itself.  I realize any capability is not directly supported, but does anybody know of a back-end way of popping this up?

I would guess easier will be to disable multiple selection in a listbox, than open dropdown.
It is possible to do the first in JavaScript and HTML form controls, but it probably gets more complicated with Metastorm (Telerik) components. I don't have access to Metastorm right now, so I can't check it, though.

How about a 1 column grid - with a "on row select" script :) 

(not trying to be a smarty pants, but sounds like that would function like a single select list )

Interesting idea Praxkan, and one that may work.  I shall have to consider it.
(But first have to "fix" something that's worked for months which appears to be a variable save/set timing issue.)
(And how users are complaining V9 is too slow compared to V7 <sigh>)
