Drop down value lists don't always work on global fields

If a global field is from an unrelated table, and has a hide condition on it referencing local or related data applied on it, drop down value lists don't show up.

 

To reproduce:

 

1. Create a global field in a table that is unrelated to the layout context

2. Apply a drop down value list to the field

3. Apply a hide condition referencing a local or related field

 

Expected result

 

The drop down value list would appear

 

Result:

 

You just enter the field no drop down is shown.

 

 

Removing the hide condition will make the drop down show up again, or moving the global field to the local table or a related table will make the drop down show up.
