Problem with Dynamic Lists

Problem with Dynamic Lists


I have been trying to set up a set of parent/child dynamic lists with Dynamic Dropdowns and I don't think the extension is working.

I have two very simple tables as follows:

Table 1: Sport
Field: id(integer)
Field: SportName(varchar)

This table is populated with one record:

SportName = Volleyball


Table 2: Positions
Field: id(integer)
Field: PositionName(varchar)
Field: Sport(varchar)

This table is populated with 3 records:

PositionName = Setter
Sport = Volleyball

PositionName = Outside Hitter
Sport = Volleyball

PositionName = Blocker
Sport = Volleyball


What I want to do is have someone select a Sport from a dynamic menu populated from the Sport recordset and then select a Position from a dynamic menu populated with values from the Positions recordset based on the Sport that was selected.


Seems like an ideal use for Dynamic Dropdowns.... but I can't get it to work. I've followed the instructions in the WebAssist help doc section "Populating a Child List from a Parent List" and have created the Dynamic Array using the Server Behaviors panel. But when I try to do the next step "Populate List from Array", the "WA Dynamic Dropdowns > Populate List From Array" is not available in the Server Behaviors panel (see attached screenshot).

What is going wrong here? Am I doing this procedure correctly?
