  1. I need to create a cascading. multi-select list box on a Submission - that has "select check boxes" associated with each option, and a "select all" button. I have explored two solutions, both of which don't work. Solution 1: I know that I could set the data type to List - String, and then multi-select becomes a standard option (with a "select all" option as well). But the problem with that standard solution is that it does not allow for cascading based on another fields in the Submission Form. Solution 2: I also know that I could use a Cascading List Box, together with the following JS code: <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"> /* "fieldName" is the variable name for the listbox type form element field. */ var fieldName = "InsertRecordCompany"; var x=document.getElementsByName(fieldName); x[0].multiple=true; </SCRIPT> But the problem with that solution is that the list box does not have "checkboxes" on the side, nor a "select all" button. This makes that solution clumsy for users. Can you help me implement what I need - a cascading. multi-select list box on a Submission - that has "select check boxes" associated with each option, and a "select all" button
  2. Hello, I have a field that normally would be a cascading radio button whose value is dependent on the selection of another field's dropdown value (the parent). However, I need the user to be able to over-ride the cascaded value occasionally. You can't do this normally so I'm trying to use js to do it. There is a text field set to Dropdown, called 'SalesCode.' A Virtual field (Virtual 18) is set to Cascading Text Field so it can receive a value when 'SalesCode' (the parent) is updated. The text field called 'Taxable' is the one I need to update. It's set to a Radio Button with 2 custom choices ('tax' or 'non'). The code I think I need is 'on change' for the SalesCode drop down field. Meaning when the user updates the SalesCode value, it updates Virtual18 (cascaded) and then the code takes the value of Virtual18 and puts in in the Taxable field's Radio Button value (the value in Virtual18 will always be either 'tax' or 'non' so it corresponds with the custom choices in Taxable). If the user wants to override that Taxable value they can change the radio button choice. The code below is something like I think I need but I can't get it to work, any help would be really great! <script> $("#InsertRecordSalesCode").change(function(){ var v_tax = document.getElementsByName("cbParamVirtual18")[0].value; document.getElementsByName("InsertRecordTaxable")[0].value = v_tax; }); </script>
  3. The main goal is to have a pre-defined on-load multi-selected listbox. The listbox element uses Cascading dropDown virtual element. It should hide some sections if 1 element selected and hide others if 2 elements are selected. Can anybody help me with the Caspio or maybe JS solution? Thanks.
  4. I have found that if I manually click on a dropdown that is a parent to another cascading dropdown, the cascading dropdown works. But when I try to use javascript to change the value of that parent dropdown, I find that it does not kick off the cascading activity of the cascading dropdown that is connect to it. Strangely, the value changes in the parent dropdown (so it works), but it doesn't impact the cascading dropdown. The js code I am using to change the parent dropdown value is: document.getElementsByName("cbParamVirtual1")[0].value="2012"; which successfully updates the value, so I know the JS works. But it doesn't impact the cascading dropdown. Is there an onchange event that is misfiring? Any suggestions?
  5. Good Morning, I'm using a bulk edit on a tabular search and report. I've noticed that my Cascading drop-downs in the bulk edit show blank entries when there in no data for the filed being edited in it's own table. I have a view set-up to filter out blank entries in the table being used for value purposes; however unless the field has data in its own table it still shows a blank. I found the following code for standard drop downs but haven't found any information for cascading drop downs used in the bulk edit. Hoping someone can assist with code updates. All my attempts have been unsuccessful. Thanks...Bre <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"> <!-- Function removeBlanksInDropdown searches for blank entries and removes all occurrences. It is advisable to use this script with the "Show distinct display options" checkbox checked in the dropdown configuration in the Caspio Bridge DataPage Wizard --> function removeBlanksInDropdown() { /* dropdown stores the value of the dropdown form element reference in the DataPage. */ var dropdown = document.getElementsByName("Value1_1"); for (var q = dropdown[0].length-1; q >= 0; q--) { if (dropdown[0].options[q].value == "") dropdown[0].remove(q); } } document.addEventListener('DataPageReady', removeBlanksInDropdown); </SCRIPT>
  6. I'd like to display the value of a cascading drop down as text. My submission form allows the user to select a lesson from a list. Once the lesson is selected, I would like to display the lesson description below it. I use a cascading drop down to get the description, but it only shows the first part of the description because it's a drop down. I need to display the full text, which varies from 350-600 characters. I think I need to use document.getElementsByName and assign it to a variable, then display that variable. But, I'm not a JS programmer. Attached is a screen shot of what my form looks like. It allows the teacher to select a lesson then request a time and day for the lesson to be taught. Any help would be appreciated!
  7. Hi, it seems that the only way to make a field available as a PARENT FIELD for a cascading dropdown, is to make that field editable; otherwise, that field is not an option. I need to filter a dropdown according to a field that I can't allow to be edited. This is what I need on a Bulk Edit on a report: field type: cascading dropdown filter by: parent field parent field type: display only Has anyone run into this before? Any ideas? Thanks
  8. I am able to get the cascading dropdowns to work in the details page for first selecting state, then county. However, I am having difficulty making it work in the grid edit mode of my tabular report. Since going through some of the Caspio HowTo documentation, I made my County table into more of a cascading table format that includes columns for both state and county. (I also have a separate table with the list of states in case I need to go back to distinct County and State lookup tables.) When a user selects a county, there is an implied state with it from the County table. My goal is to have the user be able to select the state first in my Facilities tabular report, then select the county as a cascading dropdown filtered on the state value. (Sometimes the state is known when a new facility record is added, but the county not until later.) When I try to implement cascading dropdowns in the grid edit page, there is no option to select the county name as the display value. The column "CountyId" in the Facility table is an integer number data type that stores the autonumber Id from the linked County table. I would appreciate anyone's suggestions! Screenshot included.
  9. I have a Submission form that has a Dropdown for "Product" and the next field uses a Cascading Dropdown for "Price". The following fields are "Additional Charges" and "Discounts". I want the next field to Total the previous three. I have placed the following code in the Footer of the Submission form: <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"> function summation() { var Cost = document.getElementById("InsertRecordPrice").value; var Additional_Charge = document.getElementById("InsertRecordAdditional").value; var Disc = document.getElementById("InsertRecordDiscount").value; var Total_Invoice = parseFloat(Cost) + parseFloat(Additional_Charge) + parseFloat(Disc); document.getElementById("InsertRecordTotal").value = Total_Invoice; } document.getElementById("caspioform").onsubmit=summation; </SCRIPT> When Price is a cascading dropdown, I do not get a value in the "Total" field. If I change price to a standard dropdown with custom values the above script works perfectly. In a perfect world, I really don't need a cascading dropdown for Price if I could figure another way to get the number into the field. The dropdowns are from a separate table called with the product name as column 1 and price as column 2. Any ideas on why this would be misbehaving? Thanks.
  10. I am having trouble with a submission form getting a total amount. I can get the javascript to work if I enter values in standard fields. It works fine if I use custom values in a dropdown. Where the code does not work is when I use a cascading dropdown. The form is an internal billing request form. There is a price field which is based on the product selected in a previous form. When the select the product, the price goes into the cascading dropdown and fills in the form properly. After price is a field for additional charges and following that a field for discount. I have the following javascript in the footer of the submission form. <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"> function summation() { var Cost = document.getElementById("InsertRecordPrice").value; var Additional_Charge = document.getElementById("InsertRecordAdditional").value; var Disc = document.getElementById("InsertRecordDiscount").value; var Total_Invoice = parseFloat(Cost) + parseFloat(Additional_Charge) + parseFloat(Disc); document.getElementById("InsertRecordTotal").value = Total_Invoice; } document.getElementById("caspioform").onsubmit=summation; </SCRIPT> There's obviously something I'm not getting about the difference between entering a value and using a cascading dropdown. Technically, it doesn't even need to be a cascading dropdown if there is another way to get a default value from a table. If anyone can see where my error is, please let me know. I even created a stand alone form with only the 5 necessary fields just for experimentation and I'm stumped. Thanks in advance.
