  • Automatically adding values to a drop down box

    I want to add a drop down to a contract. I have some of the addresses needed and they are in the list. We only work with so many addresses. What I would like to do is have the addresses automatically added to the list if they aren't already in the list. So I tab to the address field and this address is not available in the list, I have Allow User to enter custom text checked, so the user types in 123 Anywhere Street because it isnt in the list. Is there a way to automatically add 123 Anywhere street to the item list? Eventually all of the addresses that we deal with would be added. I'm thinking that it has to be a VBA. The combo box is named address1. Your help would be greatly appreciated!

    Here is the script:

    var oField1 = this.getField("address1");
    var vField2 = this.getField("textFilledByUser").value;
    oField1.insertItemAt(vField2, vField2, 0);
    Last parameter: If 0 (the default), the new item is inserted at the top of the list. If –1, the new item is inserted at the end of the list.
