Dynamic Drop Downs - refresh

Thread began 9/22/2011 11:41 am by demetri.demetrakis378886 | Last modified 9/23/2011 4:18 am by demetri.demetrakis378886 | 900 views | 2 replies |


Dynamic Drop Downs - refresh


Was wondering, I have implemented a series of 5 dynamic drop down boxes, the first controlling the contents of the first and so on as you would expect.

However a little niggle is that when you select your initial value which then loads the contents into the 2nd drop down, I notice that if you want to keep the default selected 2nd value it does not auto populate the 3rd box, you have to select something else first then click on the original value in the 2nd box in order to have this populated.

Is it possible to not have this work in this way?

Thank in advance

in each of your drop downs, you should have a static "Make a selection" option.

In the Populate List From array behavior, set the "Leave Top" option to "1"

this way, you will make a selection from the parent list, which will populate the child list. The child list will still have the "Make a selection" option selected forcing you to select something from the child list to populate the grandchild list and so on.
