Code Lists

Code lists are the lists that are available when you need to choose from certain predefined values. For example, for a Person entity type, this could be a list of values for hair or eye color.

There are three types of code list:

  • Pick lists (drop-down lists) provide textual values for Selected from Code List or Suggested from Code List fields.

Pick lists can be filtered, so that the value selected in one list controls the values available in the list below it.

  • Icon lists provide access to icons, typically an appropriate subset of the icons supplied with iBase.
  • SCC lists for use only with the Security Classification Code field type.

Code lists are created by database designers but you may be able to change their contents.
