  • There is no such control that is provided for use in forms. I've never seen such a control from various collections of 3rd party controls either. I have no idea how you'd implement such a cascading control.
     
    Perhaps that requirement might need to be changed based on what can actually be done?

  • Take a look at the information at http://www.outlookcode.com/article.aspx?id=32, there's a section on that page for list and combo controls, and how to work with and populate them. There's also a lot of other very good information related to custom Outlook forms there.

    Hi Ken,

    I have two dropdowns on my Form, Child dropdown(Combobox2)  should be filled according to value selected in Parent Dropdown (Combobox1) 

    Ex. 

    In Combobox 1 If selected value=1 then

    in combobox 2 list should display 1.1,1.2,1.3

    and if value =2 then 

    in combobox 2 list should display 2.1,2.2,2.3

    Thanks,

    Vikram
