Drop-down Filter Questions... RRS feed

  • User-2146400267 posted


    I have 2 Question about two different drop-down boxes on the same List page.  One drop-down is named Deleted and the other named Clients.

    1) I have a bit column in a table that indicates if the row was "deleted". 

    The Dynamic Data drop-down filter defaults to All.  But for the Deleted column, I want the drop-down to default to false.

    How do I do this?

    2) The Clients Drop-down lists All clients, but I want that drop-down to only contain records where the Deleted column = false.

    How do I do this?

    You could do this by modifying the default filters but that would be a mess so what I recomment is to add DD Futures to your site and the follow my instruction on getting DD Futures Filters working with a file based website here:

    1. Part 1 - Getting Dynamic Data Futures filters working in a File Based Website.
    2. Part 2 - Create the AnyColumn filter from the Dynamic Data Futures Integer filter.
    3. Part 3 – Creating the AnyColumnAutocomplete filter.

    Once youve got this working I'd create some custom filters to do what I wanted.

    I will be working on indivdual filters that filter each other in the next few weeks for a project I'm working on so I'll post the article back here when I'm done.

    Hope this helps Big Smile

    P.S. there is a Cascade filter that may be close to your needs already in the DD Futures project Big Smile
