Show related information

Hi Mark,

I was wondering if there is any function that I can use in the Item Display form to show related information for look-up items in the list.

For e.g. I have a list of products, in which there is a column called dependency which looks up to its own Title column and allows multiple selectionn. What I want is on display form for the product I want to show all dependent products and its related dates in a single column.

Please let me know if it is feasible by any way using your SPServices or any other way.

Thanks! Shalin

Shalin:

I would use a DVWP for this on the DispForm. There's no reason to use the Web Services because the values won't change during the page life. SPShowRelatedInfo is specifically written for use in forms with dropdowns.
