  1. Is it possible to create a cascading dropdown from an autocomplete entry? If not, why?
  2. I could work my way through this if I could ask the occasional simple question while I'm working on it. ............ But I've said that before. You only need to look at the dates of the two previous posts to get an idea of what I'm talking about.
  3. Ok great. Except for one thing or actually several. Chat never works unless it's during the 4 hours you work. Tech support takes days, especially over the weekend and your sites help section does a great job of telling us how to use the specific features in your ap and how to create a relationship with a drag and drop menu or create a view for filtering or joining tables or any number of other different things but does NOTHING to help us actually use them! 1.) Once I build a view, how the hell do I implement it? There are no examples that make any sense whatsoever unless I want to move int
  4. I pay $149 a month to be a member here and to make use of this product. So far, in the last 2 months I have gotten no where. I've deleted my entire project twice and started over. The support here is terrible. Well, I guess I can't really say that because I've never actually been able to work with anyone from Caspio on my project. During the day, my time is completely consumed. The only time I can make to work on my project is in the evenings, sometimes in the wee hours of the morning and the weekends. I would venture to say there are a lot of people like me with the same exact problem. S
  5. It seems I'm not the only one seeking multiple selection checkboxes on this site. It also seems like the reasons they don't exist are based on being able to charge a little more to the end user. Not sure if I like that. Having said that, I found some script in here to create multiple checkboxes for a search form. I tried to incorporate it but to no avail. I have a lookup_table with 29 selections. I would like to use checkboxes arranged neatly on the page via html (maybe 5 across, evenly spaced). I would like to draw the labels and content from the lookup_table allowing the user to make mul
  6. Ok, I've tried this all the ways I know how and it just doesn't work. One of the things I noticed is when you try and hide the dropdown box, the box disappears, the virtual1 folder is renamed to virtual 2 (then there is 2) and the entire thing just explodes. I am sure I'm doing something wrong. I am working with a view because I need to access 2 tables. I am having a lot of trouble understanding that concept and I can't seem to get any help (I can only work on my project in the evening and cannot avail myself of caspio's staff during the day.) I have two tables. the first table (dpmc_p
  7. One more question. I have a license plate field as well as a vin field, both with their own needs in the same datapage. I tried adding the script in twice but there appears to be some conflict as i can only get one to work. I even tried changing the function name to no avail. (v_plate to l_plate). What am I doing wrong? Do I need to merge them into one somehow?
  8. I told you I was a newbie. Changed it to 'InsertRecordlic_plate' and it works great. Thank you very much.
  9. I understand how I can use the cascading dropdown to auto populate fields based on the parent drop down. Here is my dilemma. I want to allow the user to use their assigned permit ID number to populate the remaining fields. (year make model and color of the car) if it exists in the permit database. I do not want to use a dropdown as I do not want to display a list of active permit numbers. How would I use a text field as the parent to populate the child boxes below? Also, how would I display an error message (maybe "This permit is not registered in the system. You must use a valid permit num
  10. Tried using it on my blackberry. displays page but does not create drop down menus. I know blackberry can view them as I have several other sites where the dropdown works fine.
  11. I recently created a copy of one of my datapages in the mobile format. I noticed 2 things You cannot use cascading dropdownsRegular dropdown boxes appear as a list of radio buttons on a wml page I already sa where cascading dropdowns weren't available yet in mobile but how do I solve the problem of the disappearing drop down box?
  12. Doesn't seem to work... I don't even get an error. Would the fact that I have the field set to autocomplete create an issue?
  13. Very nice. Thank you! I'll load it up and report any problems back here. Thanks again...
