Enum with Base Type XY

I would like to use Enum with Base Type XY so that I could choose an XY value.
Just like I can choose an Image in an Enum column with Base Type Image:
image

When I set it up, I cannot choose a Background image for the XY coordinates.
Error: Column Name ‘XY’ in Schema ‘KML_Schema’ of Column Type ‘XY’ has an empty base image.

Does anyone have a solution, or should I change it to a feature request?


EDIT: When I use Enum with Base Type LatLong, it is working:
Dropdown
image

Buttons

Hi @Steve thank you for escalating. Do you have any update / timeline for this?

I got nothin’. :frowning:

Hi @Steve. What do you think? Is this a small bug that AppSheet can fix in the near future, so I should wait? Or is this something that could last 2 years, so I should find my own workaround?

The same behavior is missing, when you set a Ref to a table with XY as the label. LatLong as the label is working; XY not.

My personal approach is to assume that minor bugs will not be fixed and to just work around them. There’s no way to predict which seemingly small bugs will be fixed or when. The same is true for some big bugs, like IFS(), and card views.
