pxDropdown and Local Data Storage/Data Page

Hi all,

I recently (Feb 2015) completed SAE I and II training, which at the time was updated to v 7.1.6. One of the subjects we covered was Data Tables.

I started to create a Data Table via the Data Table wizard as we have been trained, but I see this in the Designer Studio

Data Tables have been replaced by the new local data storage format. Please click 'Convert' on each data table to convert them into the new format. To create storage for a new data type, go to the Data Explorer.

So, I created a local data storage item, with corresponding data pages (one for the page, one for a list of the pages). So far, so good.

I'd like now to use that list as the source of values in a pxDropDown that is defined on a property in my Case, but am somewhat stymied by the choices on the screen where I edit the source for the pxDropdown.

Again this is the "Display and Validation" section of the property of the data model, not the "add a pxDropdown in a Section", which appears to have different settings.

"Local List" just gives me a place to hard-code the values

"Field Value" , haven't really figured the prompts there out yet

"Class Key Value" , .likewise

"Remote list" looked promising but I can't seem to get the right things entered

"Prompt List" also doesn't make much sense

So, can I set up things this way? I'd like to have

- the property use a pxDropdown for display and validation

- have the pxDropdown use my local-data-storage-defined D_xxxxxxList as the source of values
