This module allows to create a so called "#dependent
#fields". I.e. a dropdown-like fields in which the available options depends on a selection in another field. A very common example is a Category->Subcategory. So when a certain #Category is selected - the #Subcategory field shows only options related to a selected category. There could be a lot more use cases for dependent fields such as Country->State->City or City->School.Any customizable #form in UNA can be extended with this module and have dependent fields on it. I.e. Persons, Organizations, Posts, Discussions - literally any form can have dependent fields with this module.
Note that the module affects only the "select" type of fields (dropdowns).

Hello AQBsoft can you please step by step explain how to implement dependent fields to Market module categories.I couldnt manage it :)
1. First create a subcategories dependent values list in the module:
2. Then populate it with values in the module:
3. Then go to forms builder for the Market module and add the Subcategory field as follows:http://yoursite.com/studio/builder_forms.php?page=fields&module=bx_market&object=bx_market&display=bx_market_entry_add
And you're done.
Hi AQB Soft,
thank you for a great module :-) Installation was easy and it worked right away.
Is it possible to have a default value für the dependent fields such as "Please select" after the top category was selected? It seems to work for one entry, but for the others it always chooses the first item from the list. I didn't find a way for this.
Issue was fixed in a few hours with an update - thank you for this truely best in class support!
