It is very easy to give a default value to a picklist; however we need to pay attention on some specific setting in order to successfully generate the code. The following example shows how to set a default value to a picklist where we select a color.
Open Designer interface and create a picklist. Double-click the Picklist List on the left side of the Designer interface.
Obtain the Field Name and add some static values of color to the picklist, for example 'Red,' 'Blue,' 'Yellow,' 'Green' case-sensitive, which means that 'Red,' 'RED,' 'red' are different values
Open Script Editor and double-click AfterOpen event on the right side of the Editor.
- Add the following code into 'AfterOpen' event to set the picklist default value to 'Blue'
_FieldName.Value = "Blue"
where FieldName is our picklist's Field Name
Note: The default value that we set here MUST match one of the values in the picklist.
