    Cascading Dropdown pairs using the same DataConnection

    I have cascading drop-down list boxes for District - City names. First i select the district and then City dropdown refreshes. I have no problem  with doing this. I have DataConnection for getting Districts and Cities. And i bind dropdowns using them. The problem is there is 5 of "District-City" dropdownlist pairs in my form. And all of them use the same DataConnections. So when i change the district in one of them, all of the City dropdowns reloads. So as you realize drop-down pairs do not match when i select different Districts. I dont't want to use a diffrerent DataConnection for per dropdownlist. Is there a way to do it with one District DataConnection, one City DataConnection and multiple District-City dropdown pairs.

    Thank you....

    Re: Cascading Dropdown pairs using the same datasource

    Hi,

    One way is bind the drop down lists to the main data source with different fields. and use the external data source(District/City) to get the vaues in the drop down. 

    Hope this helps you.
