Can I get an enum to display as buttons if there is an App Formula determining what the value of the enum is…

For example, I have 2 columns in a row, and the outcome of the first determines the value of the next. I’d like the second column to show as enum style buttons, for the look of the thing, but it insists on being a dropdown (albeit one that doesn’t drop down, since I have specified what its value is already).

Can we not get it to display as enum buttons, despite being a pre-determined value?

See in the image… The “Cord Side:” column would be better if displayed as buttons with Left/Right on them, so they follow the other buttons in the app…

@Green_Gorilla You can set the EnumInputMode property to control whether it shows up as lists, buttons, or automatically determined.

@tony But that is the problem… I set it to buttons and it goes back to list.

I think it is due to me specifying in the formula what the value is…

I don’t really want it as an enum, just as an enum lookalike…

@Green_Gorilla Oh, I misunderstood. I didn’t realize that you had an app formula for that column. It’s possible that when there’s an app formula, the input mode is overridden. Adding @Adam_Stone_AppSheet
