    Cascading conditional lists.


      Could someone point me to an online fm file with a 3-4 tier cascading selection list. I've tried several of the recipes on this forum but there is some concept I'm missing. I get partial lists, but restricted in odd ways.


      I eventually want a click on a field to open a popover window with a 4 tier set of conditional popup lists each one cascading from the one above it.

          Part of the 'trick' is to clear selections when moving to different lists. For example, if you have a state list, then select a city list, next a zone list. What should happen if you select a new state? The other lists should clear current selections.


          Another thing that may help is to use globals for the selecting and then push (if needed) to a record.


          Otherwise, it's all based on the relationships to make each list populate.


          What examples have you found that you are trying to analyse?
