Re: Add Combobox in activiti designer for User task properties using stencils

I am assuming you are using Enterprise edition since you mentioned "Stencils".
It is absolutely possible to add complex property types such as a combo box, we have done this a number of times.

However, you cannot do it using the Activiti tooling, you must create your custom stencilset manually (in the json) and upload it.

Additionally, you may need to register the new property type, template and controller using the resource loader capabilities.

Been meaning to write a blog about this, but dont seem to get time.

I can't say if i can achieve this since i am new to it and finding difficult to get these kind of things anywhere documented. I'll try google though for creating custom stencilset manually if I get any solution.Not much is documented for extending Activiti features and understand it completely. you have been really helpful thank you.

Unfortunately this is not documented anywhere, it is something we had to discover over time.
