SPCascadeDropdowns in DFWP

Jul 28, 2013 at 6:49 PM

I would need to cascade Dropdowns in a Data Form Web Part. Either with Dropdowns which are always shown or with activated inline editing (Dropdowns shown after clicked edit or insert link).

My question: Is it possible in general to use SPCascadeDropdowns in a Data Form Web Part? Ad hoc I could´nt get this to work.

Btw: Cascading Dropdowns in "normal" Sharepoint Forms work excellent. It´s very helpful.

Best regards,

You'll need to mimic the markup for the columns in your DVWP. There are some notes about this in the docs, but generally the field controls will be identical. However, the inline editing situation may not work. You'll have t step through the code to see if the selectors are working properly.

The fact that you are using a DVWP doesn't matter per se, as long as the markup matches what the function looks for.
