  • Hello All

    I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction on customizing a NewForm even further. I have an issue, but I think I have a workaround for a requirement that has to be implmented in this New sharepoint Site. So What I am trying to do is when a User click the drop down bar it will display 2012,2013, and 2014. When the user selects any of those dates I would like the corresponding months for that year to appear. So they hit 2012 then Jan, Feb, Mar, ... Dec appear. or 2013 and 2014 so on. So the box never really seem to change its just the name of that datafield so I can apply some logic to each year. So in a sense there would be 3 January Fields stacked on top of eachother but only 1 showing at any giving time.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • How comfortable are you with JQuery?  This sounds like it could be achieved via SPServices Cascading Drop Downs, which can be seen here: -

    Whilst it can be a bit tricky to set-up for someone not familiar with the technology, it works wonders once you're used to it.

    I do have some concerns over the maintanability of what you're pulling together though, based on what you've been asking in other threads.  Keep in mind tha the more intricate your build, the more you'll be the only one supporting it.
