dynamic select with nested repeat?

Thread began 6/24/2020 12:59 am by SCar87011738 | Last modified 6/26/2020 9:59 am by SCar87011738 | 318 views | 5 replies


Hi Ray,
I would like to list all options in the select by category:


<optgroup label="cat1">
<option 1...>
<option 2...>
<option 3...>

<optgroup label="cat2">
<option 4...>
<option 5...>
<option 6...>


I have all options in a db table where one column holds the value and another column holds the category:

option - category
option 1 - cat1
option 2 - cat1
option 3 - cat1
option 4 - cat2
option 5 - cat2
option 6 - cat2

I would like to create a repeat region that holds the category and a nested repeat region that holds the options.

It seems the simplest solution, actually, is to create multiple recordset (one per category) and display them in the <optgroup> tags created manually.
