Document Library: How to Interact with a Drop Down Field without using "Edit in Grid View"

Contributor

I have a dropdown field in the document library which I cannot set signoff status in normal view.  I have to click in Edit in Grid View and then it allows me to select the status. Is there a way I can accomplish this without using Grid View.  Maybe JSON? not sure.

@VeeExcelLearn Yes, this is possible using JSON formatting. You have add below line in your JSON code: 

 

"inlineEditField": "@currentField",

 

Example:

 

{
  "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/v2/column-formatting.schema.json",
  "elmType": "div",
  "inlineEditField": "@currentField",
  "style": {
    "flex-wrap": "wrap",
    "display": "flex"
  },
  "children": [
    {
      "elmType": "div",
      "style": {
        "box-sizing": "border-box",
        "padding": "4px 8px 5px 8px",
        "overflow": "hidden",
        "text-overflow": "ellipsis",
        "display": "flex",
        "border-radius": "16px",
        "height": "24px",
        "align-items": "center",
        "white-space": "nowrap",
        "margin": "4px 4px 4px 4px"
      },
      "attributes": {
        "class": {
          "operator": ":",
          "operands": [
            {
              "operator": "==",
              "operands": [
                "@currentField",
                "Rejected"
              ]
            },
            "sp-css-backgroundColor-BgDarkRed sp-css-borderColor-WhiteFont sp-field-fontSizeSmall sp-css-color-WhiteFont",
            {
              "operator": ":",
              "operands": [
                {
                  "operator": "==",
                  "operands": [
                    "@currentField",
                    "Approved"
                  ]
                },
                "sp-css-backgroundColor-BgMintGreen sp-field-fontSizeSmall sp-css-color-MintGreenFont",
                {
                  "operator": ":",
                  "operands": [
                    {
                      "operator": "==",
                      "operands": [
                        "@currentField",
                        "Pending"
                      ]
                    },
                    "sp-css-backgroundColor-BgGold sp-field-fontSizeSmall sp-css-color-GoldFont",
                    {
                      "operator": ":",
                      "operands": [
                        {
                          "operator": "==",
                          "operands": [
                            "@currentField",
                            ""
                          ]
                        },
                        "",
                        "sp-field-borderAllRegular sp-field-borderAllSolid sp-css-borderColor-neutralSecondary"
                      ]
                    }
                  ]
                }
              ]
            }
          ]
        }
      },
      "txtContent": "@currentField"
    }
  ]
}
