Dynamic dropdown menu on an update page with Data Bridge 2.0

I have created a dynamic dropdown menu based on the tutorials: Dynamic Dropdown with Data Bridge 2.0 and it works seamlessly on the insert page I have created.
Just wondering how I might go about using it on an update page I can get it to show the Main Dropdown value but don't know how to have the child dropdown show the current value for that specific record. Are you able to provide some instructions?
Thank you!

You can use the update recordset to set some $_POST variables manually to the previous values before the child dropdown plugin loads. Then use those in the child plugin if they exist to filter and select the correct record.

If you send me a url to reproduce the issue and FTP access then I can add it so you can see.

I added this above the plugin on the edit page:


<?php
$_POST["distance"] = $Recordset6->getColumnVal("race");
$_POST["heats"] = $Recordset6->getColumnVal("shirtselect");
?>

That sets the form element values as if they were submitted before it loads so the plugin is filtered properly. Since I noticed the plugin was filtered by the value of: $_POST["distance"]

Then I added code to the plugin to select the correct option based on the value of $_POST["heats"];
