i’m using form select dropdown that i connect to my cms with the finsweet select.
my question, is it possible to have a second dropdown that filters the options from a cms depending on the choice in hte previous select dropdown field?
nobody knows how to solve this?
SI gues it is not possible to have a dropdown with with values that are dependend from a previous dropdown without using code…
Hi Dennis, your post was in the wrong category, I’ve corrected that.
What you’re describing is a filter capability, which is not what FS CMS Select does.
FS CMS Filter does this however it works by filtering a collection list, not a select.
Conceptually, that means →
- Static CL #1 of options for select 1
- Static CL #2 of all possible options for select 2
- FS CMS Select #1
a. Acts as a filter trigger for CL #2
- CL #2, after filtering, then needs to be applied using CMS Select to select #2
Even if you could find a way to control the invocation and scope of each of these steps through FS APIs, it would be extremely fragile. I see problems between every one of those steps.
Custom coding is far easier in this case.
