SPCascadeDropdowns : Child cascaded fields not updated

Apr 4, 2011 at 2:14 PM


I have a problem with SPCascadeDropDowns : my four cascaded fields work very nice when i creating a new item.

But when i come back for an update and update only the first cascaded item , other items are not cleared after saving. Others cascaded seem to be refreshed but only at screen.

Is there a workaround or another config to avoid this problem ?



Used script:

   <Content xmlns="<!--DATA[ <script" _mce_href=""><![CDATA[<scrip-->"><![CDATA[<script type="text/javascript" src="http://xxxx/JS/jquery-1.5.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://xxxx/JS/jquery.SPServices-0.6.0.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
            relationshipList: "SS Programme",
            relationshipListParentColumn: "Programme",
            relationshipListChildColumn: "Title",
            parentColumn: "Programme",
            childColumn: "SS Programme"
            relationshipList: "Activite",
            relationshipListParentColumn: "SSProg",
            relationshipListChildColumn: "Title",
            parentColumn: "SS Programme",
            childColumn: "Activite"

            relationshipList: "SS Activite",
            relationshipListParentColumn: "Activite",
            relationshipListChildColumn: "Title",
            parentColumn: "Activite",
            childColumn: "SS Activite"

Have you added the script to both the NewForm.aspx and the EditForm.aspx? I'm also not sure what you mean by "Others cascaded seem to be refreshed but only at screen."

Hi Marc,

Yes, i'm added the script in the EditForm.aspx too.

My problem : If i come back in edition ( EditForm) and just change the first item "Programme" other fields becomming blank (that nice) but when i click OK to submit , in the allitems liste, only first item have changed (Programme) but all others are inchanged/not updated (SS Programme/Activite/SS activite) .

I wish they were blanked ? I make a mistake ?

Hmm. I'm seeing the same thing in a test case I just created. I usually test with the columns being required, so I haven't caught that. I think w're going to have to call that a bug.

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get to this, but I have a potential fix in the latest alpha (v0.6.2ALPHA4) and I'd really appreciate it if you could test it.

The issue seems to only occur with "complex" dropdowns. By this I mean those with 20+ options, where SharePoint renders the dropdown as a hydrid of input and select elements with script driving things. If you have the issue with either a "simple" dropdown (meaning a plain old select) or a multi-select "dropdown", please let me know.
