Dynamic Dropdowns maybe missing

do we have any updated help/documentation on how to use the features of databridge - this maybe a simple thing or I'm looking in the wrong place....

my contact form has dynamic dropdown and not able to update it as the server behaviours dynamic dropdown option is missing on the list, I've created the form again from scratch as I've seen suggestion about removing old code, however I'm not seeing dynamic dropdown option under server behaviours / webassist. I do have the old version installed which errors with no recordset

I uninstall the old version of this plus the others from Supersuite, reinstalled this beta and still missing the option ?

I'm dropping the Dynamic Dropdowns extension from the latest release in favor of using the WebAssist Framework builder Plug-ins and AJAX. It is possible to create the same effect with a cleaner and more modern code base this way. I'm still working on getting a tutorial put together to show people the concepts on how to get this done.

I could help you in a premier support ticket for now, and if you create a tutorial after based on what I show you then I would be willing to refund the cost.

thanks Ray for the offer but I'm not that experienced to create a tutorial. I also do this just for personal training... I'll wait for the instructions and start learning AJAX :)

There is a Behavior (not Server Behavior) called "Load Plugin To Div" that you can use to load one page into another using AJAX.

You put the dependent select on a second page and add it below the parent select into a div that has an id attribute using a WebAssist Framework Plugin.

Then use the Behavior onchange of the first list to reload the plugin in the div below.
