UX Component Cascading DropdownBoxes Using the Client-side Data Cache Cascading dropdown boxes allow you to dynamically change the choices in a child dropdown box based on the selection in the parent dropdownbox. The UX component makes it very easy to define cascading dropdownboxes. However, in applications that are designed to work offline, you cannot use the standard way of creating cascading dropdownboxes because if you are offline you cannot make the Ajax callback to populate the child dropdownboxes when the parent dropdownbox value is changed. However, you can still implement cascading dropdown boxes in offline applications by populating the dropdownboxes from data in the client-side data cache.

In this video we show how data in the client-side data cache is used to create cascading dropdownboxes.
