AcroDialog Popup List update/store value

Hello dear community. I am trying to update or save the value from the previous selection in the pop-up list. The "Name" and "Surname" fields are fine, but the pop-up list ("Title") is not. Can anyone help me with this? When the user clicks the button, the value from the previous selection should be displayed. Any help would be appreciated.

list_Titl = {"--Select--":-1,"Ms":-1,"Mrs":-1,"Mr":-1};
var oDlg = {
	strTitle:null,
	strEdt1:null,
	strEdt2:null,
	GetListSel:function(oLst){for(var x in oLst){if(oLst[x]>0)return x;}return null;},
	initialize:function(dialog){
		var oInit = {
			Titl:this.strTitle,
			Name:this.strEdt1,
			Snam:this.strEdt2,
			Titl:list_Titl
		};
		dialog.load(oInit);
	},
	validate:function(dialog){
		var bRtn = true;
		var oRslt = dialog.store();
		return bRtn;
	},
	commit:function(dialog){
		var oRslt = dialog.store();
		this.strTitle = this.GetListSel(oRslt.Titl);
		this.strEdt1 = oRslt.Name;
		this.strEdt2 = oRslt.Snam;
	},
	description:{

	this.getField("Title").value = oDlg.strTitle;
	this.getField("Surname").value = oDlg.strEdt1;
	this.getField("Name").value = oDlg.strEdt2;

This looks like custom dialog code created with AcroDialogs

There is a slight error in the code generation. The initialize function should not be using the input value for the dropdown directly. The only value that can be loaded into a list/dropdown is the list object, "list_Titl".

So the missing element here is a function for setting the selected entry in the list object to a +1. 

 

function SetListItem(oList, cValue)
{
    for(var nm in oList)
       oList[nm] = (nm == cValue)?1:-1;
    return

       oList[nm] = (nm == cValue)?1:-1;
    return oList;
}

 

 

Now this function can be used in the Initialize function 

 

	initialize:function(dialog){
		var oInit = {
			Name:this.strEdt1,
			Snam:this.strEdt2,
			Titl:SetListItem(list_Titl, this.strTitle),
		};
		dialog.load(oInit);
