Problem with SPCascadeDropdowns - data not shown in list

Feb 3, 2011 at 2:20 PM

I'm testing the SPCascadeDropdowns and I'm encountering the following problem:

I created 3 lists

  1. Demo cascading (Title, Categorie, SubCategorie)
  2. Categorie (Title)
  3. SubCategorie (Title, Categorie)

In the "Demo cascading" NewForm.aspx I added this JS code (right after PlaceHolderMain):

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="http://cb-mossdemo/jQuery/jquery-1.5.min.js"></script><script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="http://cb-mossdemo/jQuery/jquery.SPServices-0.5.8.min.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> $(document).ready(function() { $().SPServices.SPCascadeDropdowns({ relationshipList: "SubCategorie", relationshipListParentColumn: "Categorie", relationshipListChildColumn: "Title", parentColumn: "Categorie", childColumn: "Subcategorie", debug:true, promptText:"Kies een {0}" }); });</script>
<!-- --------------------- -->

When I change the Categorie in the page nothing happens with the "Subcategorie". I checked it with firebug and the data is actually loaded but the dropdownbox is not filled.

Does anyone is having an idea what I'm doing wrong here?

I just tried jQuery 1.5 yesterday and it basically breaks everything. I need to figure out why (I'm not doing anything that hasn't worked since 1.3.2) but until then, you'll need to revert to 1.4.x.
