Replacing PromptSelect with pxDropDown is not working in DataTableEditorReport

We are upgrading from 7.3.1 to 8.3. There are some properties where we had used PromptSelect. We are now trying to replace that with pxDropDown. This property is used in DataTableEditorReport. So when we try to add a row in a data type, where the property is used the drop down doesn't show.

I also stumbled across an article which says virtual grid only supports Non Auto generated controls. Just assuming if that is the reason PromptSelect works and pxDropDown doesn't in DataTableEditorReport. Could anyone please suggest?

The prompt select control has been deprecated in 8.3 version and it is replaced by dropdown.

Just to get a clarification, are you referring the property in the report or are you trying to add the property in the data type?

I tried the use case and I am able to see the results when i run the report.

Hope my understanding is correct!

I am using the property in DataType. When I tried adding a row the drop down doesn't show with pxDropDown. Could you please try this?

I have tried to add the property in the data type. And are you mentioning about the type that has been selected in the data type :

HI, I am talking about the type of control in the property rule TestData (in your example). Use pxDropDown there instead of PromptSelect.  

Then add a row in the datatype to insert value.

How have you configured the pxDropDown. Is it populated from a Data page that contains these values ?

HI Krithiga, As provide screenshots above I have configured the pxDropDown with local list replacing the PromptSelect. (PropertyName: Process Step)
