Cascading drop-down not closing

Oct 27, 2010 at 7:38 PM



I have a cascading drop down that works mostly as expected.  The problem is that when I make a selection, the drop-down list doesn't close and obscures the next field.  Double-clicking or clicking furiously (as I've seen in other posts) doesn't help.  Funny thing is that I only have this problem in IE, not in Firefox.  Any ideas?

If the column has 20+ options, this is the behavior that SharePoint gives you. It's what I call a "complex" dropdown, because it's actually a hybrid inout/select. Turn off SPCascadeDropdowns, and you should see the exact same behavior.  If not, let me know and we can debug.
