I would love to see multiple tokens for text-value pair controls such as DropDownList, CheckBoxList, RadioButtonList, DualList... etc. They would look like the following:
1) [[MyControl]] The current default token which returns the control's Value value.2) [[MyControl_Text]] A token to return the control's Text value.3) [[MyControl_Pair]] A token to return the entire Text-Value pair. i.e. "FirstName: Steve"
The reason I think this would be an assets to XMP is the following:
When you want to create a confirmation email for a form that has multiple controls of these types, the standard token holds the Value which is usually an ID in the form of an INT. Our end users do not understand what these ID are. So as developer, we have to use complex jQuery or complex stored procedures to return the Text values for the option selected. I know because I just got done doing this. It would have been much nicer, much easier, and so much faster to have been able to use Text value tokens instead. It would allow us to reflect the end users choices in the form's confirmation email with ease.
