Refresh just the dropdown field or it's component after adding a new record to it's linked table

Hi, I have a drop down field to look up persons names and have enabled the option to add a new record. After adding a new record I would like to refresh just the dropdown field or it’s residing component. I can only seem to refresh the entire page so far. Hope someone can advise.


I am also interested on how to achieve this

@al.hodgson -

Am I understanding correctly that when you add a new person using the “+” button the name does not show in the drop down list after closing the add record window?


Hi Adam, correct, the newly added name does not appear/component does not automatically get refreshed after the pop-up record window is saved. I added a clunky button to help the users but it needs to be backstage/automatic really. Hope you can help. thanks
