Is anyone ever made a dynamic drop down list depending to another ?

Newbie

Is anyone ever made a dynamic drop down list depending to another ?

I want to design a drop down list depending to another in PDMLink 10.2

Sample :

If user chooses into the drop down list "A", value "Val1_A", then my down list "B", displayed values "Val1_B" and "Val2_B"

If user chooses into the drop down list "A", value "Val2_A", then my down list "B", displayed values "Val2_B" and "Val2_C"

Thx,

Romain

You may want to create an idea to allow such functionalitiy OOTB and I will vote it UP

We had created our own tool in WebLink for that but it was only for the creation of the parameters in Creo.....

As mentioned here by PTC,  current attribute constraints from “Type and Attribute Management utility” will not have any effect on end user interface. PTC also mentioned that “Enhancements are planned to close this gap in a future Windchill release”

I think we have to file a product idea and this needs to be present OOTB

When we customized, we had the enumerated types and there is a javascript that changes the other drop down. Windchill 11 which expected to have type manager configuration like that of FlexPLM. You can configure the attributes in the Type Manager with out any customization.
