The List Picker control in the System Center 2012 – Service Manager Authoring Tool is a System Center 2012 – Service Manager custom control that is used for selecting an item from a prepopulated list of items. You can modify properties of the List Picker control to customize the characteristics of the control.
One of the characteristics of the control that you have to set is the list of items that will populate the List Picker control that you are creating. You can either choose an existing list, such as the Activity Priority list, or you can create a new list while you are creating the control.
To add list items to a newly created list, you must use the Service Manager console. You cannot use the Authoring Tool to add list items to a newly created list. For more information about using the Service Manager console to add list items, see How to Add a List Item.
Use the following procedure to add a List Picker control to a form.
