SPCascadeDropdowns - filter a master list?

Jan 11, 2011 at 4:31 PM

Hello, 

Thanks to your great website, I have set up some cascading dropdowns. I'm new to Sharepoint. 

Is there a way to link the dropdowns to filter a list on the page? I want this list to initially load all the data available, then filter data when a selection is made in the dropdowns.

Many thanks for any guidance

Ian: There's nothing generic in SPServices for that. It sounds like what you'll want to do is bind to the change event for the dropdown and then write your own code to filter the list items. Looking at the SPServices code may give you some pointers. M.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I'll dig out my Javascript hat tonight and follow your advice tomorrow.

Appreciate your help
