Use AJAX for cascade options?

When checked, this allows these fields to dynamically load available options based on the other field value (grouping column) when dealing with tremendous amount of selections. Read more at Ajax Cascading Drop-Down List.

Do not forget to configure the dependency field in Field ID to control available option based on Grouping in the next tab.

Use question mark (?) in your SQL SELECT Query to represent dependency values.

Add Empty Option

Click this checkbox if you want an empty option in the selectbox.  Clicking this option will display the following field:

  • Empty Option Label - Enter your "empty" label, for example "Select".
SQL SELECT Query

To populate a selectbox, for example, you need to return at least 2 columns. The first column is used for Id. The second column is used for Label.
An optional third column can be returned for grouping value if for example, you are using the select box "Field ID to control available options based on Grouping" property field.
