Using a dropdown control to populate a text field - exclude existing value in field

edited April 16, 2020 in Questions
I learned from this post how to populate a text field with a drop-down control using a custom field renderer, and I've had nearly 100% success. My only problem is this: the fields we are now populating with the drop-down control contain some invalid values. Where this is the case, the existing value from the record being edited appears in the drop-down control along with the valid values we populate into the drop-down. I would like to exclude the existing value from the drop-down control in all cases and allow our users to select only values that we determine to be valid. Can I do that?

    Hey Peter, hope you are doing well with everything that's going on in the world right now.  Are you still experiencing this issue or were you able to come up with a solution in the meantime?
    • What type of field are you using to source the values? Is it a picklist field or another field type?
    • What version of Skuid are you using?
    • Are you building in API v1/v2?
