SP2010, SPD2010. Got a NewForm.aspx form. I am trying to populate a dropdown control with IDs and Names, coming from users in a particular group.
In SPD, Site Objects > Data Sources, I have created a SOAP Service Connection to /_vti_bin/usergroup.asmx?WSDL, Operation = GetUserCollectionFromGroup, groupName = a valid SP group there in the site.
Using other tools, I know the groupName is valid, and I can pry data using jQuery. I am trying to do this purely via SPD (crazy, I know.)
So, on my NewForm.aspx, my Data View DropDown Control > DataFields; I select data field to save values to. I pick datasource = "SoapDataSource1" and, the problem rears it's head. The two dropdown menus, "Select a data field for the display text:" and "Select a data field for the value:" are never populated! Argh.
I can place the SOAP data on the page and it renders as a table, so I know the data is being retrieved successfully, but why oh why is it not working within a Data View Dropdown control ?!?!? SP, I love you, I hate you! (sorry about the rant).
