  • The above mentioned code is not working for "Edit in Datasheet" mode. It just show the fields as read only in Datasheet. Do you have any solution which works for both Edit Properties and Edit in Datasheet.

    However it's also not working in Document Information Panel. But i am just looking for "Edit in Datasheet" mode. Anybody solved this issue?

  • We've made the jQuery Library for SharePoint Web Services available on Codeplex.  With it, setting up cascading dropdowns is a snap.  For your example above, it would look something like this:

    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="../../jQuery%20Libraries/jquery-1.3.2.js"></script>
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="../../jQuery%20Libraries/jquery.SPServices-0.3.1.min.js"></script>
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
      $(document).ready(function() {
          relationshipList: "States",
          relationshipListParentColumn: "Country",
          relationshipListChildColumn: "Title",
          parentColumn: "Country",
          childColumn: "State"
