    Can dynamic Dropdowns widget read from a URL

    Asked by JustSport on March 05, 2017 at 08:05 AM

    I have a form that I want the user to select their club.

    First field : Country

    Second : Region

    third : Club

    I have all these in a database and a method for calling this to get it to return a XML/JSON list of values.

    So if I called it with England, it would return the regions available and so forth.

    It's not possible to prepopulate values of Dynamic Dropdown widgets via URL. The field lacks the essential 'name' attribute to pick up values from URL parameters. 

    Warm regards.
