Populate drop down value depending on previous drop down selection

I have a requirement to populate a drop down depending on a value chosen from a previous drop down list in an Input form.

Let's say there are 2 drop downs - product group and sport name in the nms:operation table.

I have created 4 enumerations in the data schema: 

Product group= A, B, C.

sport Name A = A1. A2, A3

Sport Name B= B1, B2, B3

Sport Name C= C1, C2, C3

Depending on what is selected in product group, the sport name field should be populated with the relevant enum values.

If product group is A - I should get A1, A2 and A3 in the sport name drop down list.

If product group is B - I should get B1, B2 and B3 in the sport name drop down list.

If product group is C - I should get C1, C2 and C3 in the sport name drop down list.

In the nms:operation Input form I used the below code:

 
 

<container label="Reporting" name="cusReporting">
<container type="notebook">
<container colspan="2" label="General">
<container colcount="2" label="General" type="frame">
<input xpath="@productGroup"/>

<container visibleIf="@productGroup='A'" type="visibleGroup">
<input enum="sportNameA" type="sysenum" xpath="@sportName"/>
</container>

<container visibleIf="@productGroup='B'" type="visibleGroup">
<input enum="sportNameB" type="sysenum" xpath="@sportName"/>
</container>

<container visibleIf="@productGroup='C'" type="visibleGroup">
<input enum="sportNameC" type="sysenum" xpath="@sportName"/>
</container>

</container>
</container>
</container>
</container>

 

With this, I am able to populate the sportName enum values correctly in drop down for example when I select product group = 'A' , I see A1, A2 , A3 in sport name drop down. but when I select a different value in product group for ex. 'B' it gives the following error:

Value 'A2' is not valid for enumeration 'sportNameB (nms:operation:sportNameB)'.

I also tried using "If" expression in the form but unable to get rid of the error.

Can someone advise?

Hi,

 

Instead of using 'onClick' use 'onChange' function.

 

Use below code, it should work:

<input choiceButton="true" xpath="@productGroup">
<enter name="onChange">
<set value="0" xpath="@sportName"/>
<reset xpath="@sportName"/>
</enter>
</input>

 

Also, in your schema definition, you are defining product as attribute, revCardinality and integrity is not required. Those parameters are used when you define element.

 

Thanks.

That error / warning as per design Value 'A2' is not valid for enumeration 'sportNameB (nms:operation:sportNameB)'.. 

This is because A1, A2 , A3 values were valid for Product A but for product B its not valid . 

 

 

Solution is Clear the value A1, A2, A3 forcefully and populate this field everytime when Product A or B is selected. 

make it onclick event and it should work after that.

Can you please share the xml code for Enums you created at schema level. 

I used the below code in the input form:

 

<container colcount="2" label="General" type="frame">
<input choiceButton="true" xpath="@productGroup">
<enter name="onClick">
<set value="0" xpath="@sportName"/>
<reset xpath="@sportName"/>
</enter>
</input>
<container type="visibleGroup" visibleIf="@productGroup='A'">
<input enum="sportNameA" type="sysenum" xpath="@sportName"/>
</container>

<container type="visibleGroup" visibleIf="@productGroup='B'">
<input enum="sportNameB" type="sysenum" xpath="@sportName"/>
</container>

<container type="visibleGroup" visibleIf="@productGroup='C'">
<input enum="sportNameC" type="sysenum" xpath="@sportName"/>
</container>
</container>

 

Can you suggest another way of setting the value? The enums don't get set.

 

The data schema is below:

<enumeration basetype="string" default="none" name="cusProductGroup">
<value label="None" name="none"/>
<value label="A" name="a" value="A"/>
<value label="B" name="b" value="B"/>
<value label="C" name="c" value="C"/>
</enumeration>

<enumeration basetype="string" default="none" name="sportNameA">
<value label="None" name="none" value="0"/>
<value label="A1" name="a1" value="A1"/>
<value label="A2" name="a2" value="A2"/>
<value label="A3" name="a3" value="A3"/>
</enumeration>

<enumeration basetype="string" default="none" name="sportNameB">
<value label="None" name="none" value="0"/>
<value label="B1" name="b1" value="B1"/>
<value label="B2" name="b2" value="B2"/>
<value label="B3" name="b3" value="B3"/>
</enumeration>

<enumeration basetype="string" default="none" name="sportNameC">
<value label="None" name="none" value="0"/>
<value label="C1" name="c1" value="C1"/>
<value label="C2" name="c2" value="C2"/>
<value label="C3" name="c3" value="C3"/>
</enumeration>


<element img="nms:operation.png" label="Campaigns" labelSingular="Campaign" name="operation">

<attribute enum="cusProductGroup" label="Product Group" length="30" name="productGroup"
revCardinality="single" revIntegrity="normal" type="string"/>
<attribute label="Sport Name" length="30" name="sportName" type="string"/>

</element>
