Dropdown list function required

Dear Colleagues

i have multiple of Main Windows and i need to navigate it using dropdown list not using the tabs

how i can do this function?

please assist

regards

Have you looked at the Menus section of the client event scripts? That’s probably the most intuitive way to navigate while keeping maximum screen space for your windows.

Can you show me how from by screen shots and if you can also give me a solution for dropdown menu will be much appreciate it

Regards

what if i have 300 RTU’s and i need to navigate anyone of them in this case i need something customized like a drop down list but using client scripting it will be a long script need to be done for example if i need to navigate from RTU1 to RTU300 using database and dropdown list how it can be done

i was checking the help and i found this syntax

dropdown = event.source.parent.getComponent(“Dropdown”)
system.nav.swapTo(“MyWindow”, {“paramValue”:dropdown.selectedValue)

i tried to manipulate it but anyone try this syntax before and can you give me example
