Firstly,

Thanks for the great piece of wonderful component, which has almost infinite potential capabilities

I would like to know mote about Group Select -
{joodb groupselect|FIELD|[size]}

How can i put some Placeholder text inside the filter so that it will not showing the unfriendly ... 3 dots on the select filter field?

I do tried some such, but no luck yet - {joodb groupselect|FIELD|[<placeholder="Select Option">]}

1.) What is the proper way to do that? How to set the width?

2.) Can i have drop down menu in the submit form? Can i have group select to replace them?

3.) Can i have bootstrap table class in my catalog table view? My template do have bootstrap. Not working so far

Will be changed to a Language value in the next version. So you can use the Languag override.

Meanwhile you could insert a Javascript tag at the end of your catalog template.
jQuery("select.groupselect option:first").html("WHATEVER");

In /media/com_joodb/css/joodb.css you can change the css for joodb.
#joodbForm input.inputbox, #joodbForm  select.inputbox, #joodbForm  textarea.inputbox {
    border: 1px solid #A9A9A9;
    background-color: #fff;
    box-shadow: inset 4px 4px 10px 0 #E5E5E5;
    border-radius: 3px;
    padding: 4px 6px;
    line-height: 1.46em;
    height: auto;
}

Don't change /media/com_joodb/css/joodb.css directly otherwise it will be over ridden.
Copy /media/com_joodb/css/joodb.css to /templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/css/joodb.css

With javascript and CSS. Google for jQuery select dropdown
E.G. select2.org/dropdown

Look at /media/com_joodb/css/joodb.css it may overrride the bootstrap css

Many of your Questions are not Joodb related!

Just a quick check, i just need a simple dropdown menu like this sample, the group-select doesn't work here

Refer to the select list of Useful, we have option of Yes / No

Name
Position - Executive / Senior Executive / Manager / Director
Department - Finance / Legal / Logistic

How can i have the fields of Position and Department to have a set of options where when user choose it will submitted to the database just like normal other form text fields

I just need the code sample, something like this if i'm not mistaken

<select>
<option value="Executive">Executive</option>
<option value="Senior Executive">Senior Executive</option>
<option value="Manager">Manager</option>
<option value="Director">Director</option>
</select>

Please help, thanks!

Contributing to a good component community here

The built in form works well, but it was too simple, at least for my project requirements

So, I'm using another form component that can directly update our pre-built database fields

Please try the Form Maker component from Web Dorado, even the free version is powerful enough for most tasks

Just using their simple MYSQL Mapping features, select the insert type and simply choose your table and assign your fields, click on generate query and hit save button. from now on, every new submission will be added to the database table

Hope this can helps someone out there :)
