Hi Tina,

You make that field as List Item type and then you can specify the descriptions using the elements list property

Hi Lakshman! But it's a base item, values will come from the database. Thanks a lot!

Hi again! I tried changing it to list item. My problem now is I don't want to show the arrow. I tried covering it with the next item in the block but it still remains on top.

Hi,

You set List Style property of that particular item as T - List, then your problem will be automatically solved
