Suppose (redacted example) I have an application to measure running statistics.
First field (UNITS) is a drop-down menu with the choices (MILES, KILOMETERS, OTHER)
The subsequent fields are determined by the first field.
If UNITS = MILES,:
One field (Mi.) displays, with numeric input.
If UNITS = KILOMETERS
One field (Km.) displays, with numeric input.
If UNITS = OTHER
Two fields display:
CUSTOM UNIT (text field to enter whatever you want (e.g. meters, furlongs, etc.)
DISTANCE (where you enter a numeric value e.g. 3 for 3 furlongs).
Is it correct to say that there's a field dependency
between the subsequent fields and UNITS? I've heard of that term used if a field's available values depend on some other field
but how about in this case? (I'm not using Salesforce, my friend Google found it. :) )
