Conditional Value List... why?
I have been studying Conditiional Value Lists and they are admittedly 'very cool'. However, I am puzzled by this:
Somehow, even thought there are multiple Type entries; ie, Lunch, Lunch, Dinner, Dinner, Dinner etc... the Order::Type only shows a single Menu::Type. (ie, Dinner, Lunch, Desert) Why is that?
Also, when I programmatically add a new entry, like Menu::Lunch below Menu::Desert in the Menu table (It is out of sort order), it shows up sorted in the Order::Type dropdown. Great. But, why?
Just trying to understand.
a value list with values coming from a field is ALWAYS sorted ( numerically or alphabetically based on the field type ) and ALWAYS has unique values.
