SharePoint list - Cascading Lookup with default parent value selected and XSL parameters

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I might have a hard time explaining this, but bear with me.

I'm building a workflow on a SharePoint task list and want the list of available actions to be restricted based on the current status of the workflow.

As such, I have implemented a cascading lookup solution from codeplex which uses javascript.  It's a client side solution http://spcd.codeplex.com/ and it works great, but it requires the user must physically make a selection from the parent STATUS column before it restricts the list of available ACTIONS on the child drop down.  

What I want to do is implement the solution whereby the ACTION child column automatically gets its list of available values from STATUS parent column without the user needing to do anything.
