I have cascading LOV filters for a table with fields id, deptid, projectName. The filters are for deptid and projectName. When I select a deptid, the projectNames belonging to that deptid should be populated. I have set Auto submit for deptid filter and partial trigger for project Name. So if I select a deptid and when I navigate to Project Name filter I get the list of project Names in the Project LOV filter.This worked fine as long as I didnt change the value for LOV to Vs.filtercriteria.deptid. Once I changed it the LOV filter for Project Names only got refreshed once I hit ENTER key after changing the value of Deptid. But I have to keep the value for LOV to Vs.filtercriteria.deptid. Other wise the records in the table after applying the filter values didnt function properly. I dont know whether the AutoSubmit does not work when the value is changed to Vs.filtercriteria.deptid.
You don't mention what kind of list of values you created (model driven or dynamic) so that its hard to tell. Setting the value to Vs.filtercriteria.deptid will have an impact for model driven list of values because the underlying VO attribute you would use for model driven cascade updates is not updated (at least not before the filter is submitted (enter key)). So my assumption is that you use model driven list of values while dynamic list of values should work well for you. Anyway, can you confirm you use model driven list of values?
Ps.: One thing always worth doing is to verify behavior with a later releaase of JDeveloper (e.g. 184.108.40.206)
