While implementing dependent choice list I created two tables & their views with internal column as varchar(for example: countryName for country table & stateName for states table) instead of int. I couldn't get the DCL working: selecting a value from the dropdown of parent field won't show up only the dependent values of the child field; it will display the dropdown with all values (it will show all values of the States irrespective of the countryname selection). However when I select the internal column as int & visible column as varchar the DCL works fine.
Our requirement is to use the internal columns as varchar instead of int. Please suggest/help.
Try creating a Primary key/foreign key relation between the two tables.
Then only it would be possible.
The above might help.
I have done that. The problem is: dependent choice list doesn't seem work is you choose primarykey/foreign key as varchar. It works if I choose the primarykey/foreign key as int. And this key will be the internal column in the views. My requirement is to have them as varchar so that while checking-in content using RIDC API I don't have to provide the int value.
Thanks & Regards,
