App Designer: "Value" element now a string

16 views (last 30 days)
Is there any replacement variable for the "Value" in a dropdown UI element that enables me to get the index of the array that was chosen by the user? It is cumbersome to have to execute a find command every time this array index needs to be used.
Thank you,

Hi Kristoffer,
It is possible to index information if you can use the property ItemData of drop-down component.
I found a similar question in Matlab Answers which can be referred to
Hope this helps!
