Populate a Drop-Down list in Dexterity

I'm trying to populate a drop-down list in Dexterity v9.

I can either get the info from a while loop going through a range of data, of 'bind' the drop-down list to a TEMP table populated during the while loop.

Can anyone provide the code needed to add the items?  My drop-down list is a local field, and  is called lbInvNum, and I'm trying to add a list of Invoice Numbers.

Lastly, what property of this object (lbInvNum) will hold the selected value?

Thanks in advance.

add item Inv#  to field lbInvNum;

Is this what you're looking for?

I will try that...

I'm expecting a string result (Inv #).
What will hold the value of what is selected?

You are correct on the add item answer which addressed the first question
For the second question, the value returned when something is selected is the index of the choices.

I will need to build an array to reference back to the selections added to the list.
