Adding dynamic dropdowns to a DataAssist page

Adding dynamic dropdowns to a DataAssist page

The records I'm trying to insert each have an associated category and each category has sub-categories linked to it. I've set them up as 2 tables in my database ok. DataAssist has generated the page and I have inserted records to the database fine with the specified category but I need dynamic dropdowns to make the sub-category list repopulate when the category is changed.

I thought I had this cracked but however I amend the DataAssist generated page I cannot add the "populate list from behavior" which is always grayed out.

I would really appreciate being pointed in the right direction, thanks!

before you can add the populate list from array behavior, you need to first add the Create dynamic Array server behavior.

the work flow is:

-create the parent select list
-create the child select list
-create a recordset to return the categories
-create a recordset to return subcatagories
-Add parent list, populate it using categories recordset
-Add the Create Dynamic Array, this will use the subcategories recordset. Bind the pasrent ID, child ID and Child text values to the corresponding columns of the subcategories recordset
-add the Populate List from array behavior to the onchange event of the parent select list.
