I have several forms that use cascading dropdowns to filter Galleries or Tables. Currently, when I open a form the DDs show blank. Once I start my choices at the first DD and it populates the next one automatically populates the first choice in the next DD. The next DD should not auto-populate. Rather all DDs should remain blank until the user chooses a selection with the DD read 'Select Option' or some other default instruction.


The DDs all work, they just don't stay blank (or keep the a 'Select' in the box) until an option is chosen.

Hi @Phishdawg 

Try using comboboxes instead of dropdown controls.  They don't autopopulate.
