R5 - Automate drop down value based on another field

R5 - Automate drop down value based on another field

I have varioud drop downs (1 @dbcolumn, and 4 @dblookup's based on what the @dbcolumn displays).  How can I get it so that when the user selects a value for the @dbcolumn drop down, the other 4 fields are automatically populated?


RE: R5 - Automate drop down value based on another field

Enable the "Refresh Fields on Change" option in the @DbColumn field.
That should recalculate your form and reevaluate the other fields formula. Therefor, if the other fields all use the first one as key value, it will have an impact. Oh, and the other four need to be computed, not editable.
In order to have any impact on an editable field, you have to code it specifically (most often in a button).
