cascading dropdown when the conditional field is read-only

  • 1.  cascading dropdown when the conditional field is read-only

    Hi,

    I am not sure if this has already been answered but I am trying to perform a simple cascading dropdown.
    1. [Field: Group]
    2. [Field: Preferred Product]
    The form works perfectly until I turn [Field: Group] into "read-only", when I do this [Field: Preferred Product] tells me this is a conditional drop-down.

    I want to prevent users from changing [Field: Group] once the record has been added, but I still want users to have the option of changing [Field: Preferred Product].

    Thank you for any help you may provide me.

    The conditional behavior is most likely based on the reference field, [Related Group] and not the proxy field [Group].

    Technically the proxy field used in this, while in edit mode, is actually the reference field.

    If you make that read-only, you are in turn removing the reference field.  So you will need to display the reference field on the form in some other place. 

    Then your conditional value will work.
