Hi everyone, I've used SPCascadeDropdowns successfully in the past in SharePoint Online and am now trying to use it for a project in SharePoint 2010. I believe I have set up my lists and the call to SPCascadeDropdowns correctly but the childColumn doesn't
have any choices in it. Here is what I have set up:
A list called "Facilities" that holds facility names.
A list called "Areas" that has a "Facility" column that looks up to the Facilities list and I've renamed the Title column to "Area"
A list called "WorkGroups" that has a Facility column that looks up to the Facility list and a field called Area that looks up to the Area column in the Areas list.
I'm trying to cascade the Facility -> Area relationship in the WorkGroups list.
Here is the code I'm using on the NewItem form of the WorkGroups list:
promptText: "Select an Area",
I added the prompText just to make sure SPCascadeDropdowns was actually being called. The end result is that when I pick a Facility I don't have any options in the Area dropdown, all I see is the promptText.
Am I doing something obviously wrong? Do I have to do things different in SP2010 than SharePoint Online? I've tested this with IE11, IE 8, and the latest version of Chrome.
One final note, it looks like the Dev server I'm working on is only patched up to the December 2014 CU, would that make a difference?
