    Default How to get a part of a select component string as parameter

    Hi !

    Someone could guide me on the best way to capture a value in a select component but only a portion of the string as a parameter. In particular the first 3 characters of counting from left to right.

    I know it must be something very elementary to senior members but I'm stuck. This procedure will become much more friendly the DashBoard.

    You can use the postChange hook on the selectComponent. It's a javascript function that will be triggered whenever the select value changes.

    So, you have a select component which is linked to parameter A.
    When the user changes the select, the new value will be assigned to parameter A and postChange will be called. on postChange, you substring A and assign the first 3 chars to your parameter.
