Hi,

I am not a programmer but i need some help in writing a JS Script in CRM 2011. I have created a custom entity and have 2 drop down lists of which the 2nd drop down list will change based on the selection of the first field.

1st Field is new_requesttype and the 2nd field is new_subrequesttype.

I have attached the filed mappings that needs to be followed.

If anyone can help me with the JS script.

thanks,

Hi,

There is already a ready made sample available in CRM SDK.

Go to SampleCode\JS\FormScripts\ folder. You will find files- SDK.DependentOptionSet.js and TicketDependentOptionSetConfig.xml

Check this-
