Filtering a single dropdown list

Apr 28, 2010 at 12:44 AM

Is there a function in your library to just apply a CAML query filter to a stand alone dropdown list.

This dropdown is not connected to any other value on the form.

My scenario is to display a list of projects in a dropdown from the projects list where the status of the project is Active which is a choice field on the project list item.

No, there's not anything exactly like that, but have you looked at $().SPServices.SPAutocomplete? It might give you some ideas on how your function might work.

I've just posted a proposed solution to this scenario called SPFilterLookupColumn here:
