Child List not Populating

Child List not Populating

Hi there...ok i am stuck.

I have followed the start up PDF located here dynamic_dropdowns_gsg.pdf
Read through the forums and still no luck.

1. There is no body on load code that i can see - is this an issue?
2. Is the ID in the child query meant to be the same as the ID in the Parent menu?
3. Dynamic Array setup image is here 58ffe3ac3db02ebf6f90a23178b0a4dd
4. Populate list from array setup image is here 1c0f22d8e5438074b876c3fe3a154778

Any help is appreciated

Cheers

1) No, the populate list from array behavior must be set to the onchange event of the parent ,list, not the body on load.

2) The ChildID in the Create Dynamic Array behavior will be assigned to the Value of the Child List. The Parent ID needs to match the value of the parent list.

3 - 4) the Create Dynamic array and Populate list from array behaviors look to be configured properly, as long as the value of the muofficeid column from the recordset matches the value that is being posted by the parent list.

Thanks Jason. Sorry you replied jsut as i was typing this out.

Got this sorted but is there a way to display two(2) fields from the dependant table - that is Firstname and Surname?

do you want to do this in the child list? as the child list label?

send a copy of your page so i can tell you the exact code to edit.

Jason yes that would be the idea - to have the child array display both firstname and surname
sanatised version attached.

I see you tried doing this by creating a new array item:

php:
echo "WAJA[".$n."][".$m."][1] = "."'".WA_DD_Replace($row_officesulist["musufirstname"])."'".";\n";

    echo "WAJA[".$n."][".$m."][2] = "."'".WA_DD_Replace($row_officesulist["musususurname"])."'".";\n";




instead of creating a new array item, concatenate the last name into the original array item:

php:
echo "WAJA[".$n."][".$m."][1] = "."'".WA_DD_Replace($row_officesulist["musufirstname"])." ".WA_DD_Replace($row_officesulist["musususurname"]."'".";\n";
