There are few issues I am facing, request help.

  • If my child dropdown doesnot have any data it saves the first record of the lookup to the column.
  • My child dropdown is a required field. cascading removes it from being required field.
  • It throws an error when prompt text is used and no items in child dropdown.

If you have parent values which have no children and the child column is required, then you have an issue, don't you? It would be impossible for the user to submit a valid item.

Adding SPCascadeDropdown will not change the fact that the column is required.

promptText was something I added early on but discourage using, as noted in the documentation.
