cascading dropdowns

Aug 11, 2009 at 2:20 PM

Hi,

I'm new to sharepoint and have a question about your cascading dropdowns you describe in this article:

http://www.codeplex.com/CustomFieldControls

I installed it from http://blog.12thwave.com/?p=7 and it works perfectly.

Now my question is, how easy would be to alter your code so the last dropdown is not a dropdown but a textfield. Basically what I want to achieve is that once all the previous dropdowns have been selected, we get a textbox at the end with a summary text. This summary text would be definied in the list of the last dropdown.

Thanks in advance

thanks for you reply.

like I said, I'm new to sharepoint and I'm not familiar at all with customization, although I'm a C# developer myself....

for what you are saying it seems to be an easy change then? could you be a bit more specific in to what needs to be changed?

thanks

Couple of hours on custom fields section of WSS SDK would be enough to start off. You'd basically know what a custom field control in Sharepoint is all about and what are the major classes controls required for a simple/basic custom field
