Multi-Select List contents dependent on (another) Dropdown List Selection

I am looking to implement the following:

1. A user will make a selection from a dropdown list (customfieldId_11111).

2. Based on the selection from the dropdown list, another field (customfieldId_22222), which is a multi-select field, will display options, which can be selected.

Why not using the cascading select custom field?

One user can set only the 1srt component, and other user may choose the 2nd component based on the previous selection.

Or even this plugin?

Is there any requirement to store the values in two separate custom fields?

I did deploy that, but the limitation is that I can only select one item in the cascasded field. I would like the 2nd field to be a multi-select.

Ops, I didn't realized that.

If you're used to coding in Javascript, take a look to the links provided here

or here ->

The overall process is creating 2 custom fields: single select and multiselect. The multiselect should contain all values from all options of the single-select.

You should embed a script in the multiselect description that reads the single-select value and enables/disables the corresponding options in the multiselect.


Would you have the JS code to do this? Thanks.

Hi. I have a similar query. Do you have a solution for this?
