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

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



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?

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"/>


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.
