Hi,
how can I set a value of dropdown depending on a a previuos dropdown ?
I still want to see all values, but I want to set a specific one.
I thought I can do it with Tab Event - Designer: What sintax do I need to use?
This is what I've done:

There's a demo form "dynamic dropdown" explaining how to do it.

Thanks Healyhatman,
but unfortunately it does not.
I mean: in the demo, you got different array of values for the second dropdown, according to the value you set in the first dropdown.
Instead in my case I would like to select a specific value of the second dropdown when setting the first dropdown: so same array of value but not the first selected, but the one I choose.
That's why I was trying to use :

Thanks for Advice!

put {var:yourvariable} in the "selected value" portion of the second dropdown. Your reloading event then needs to set the value of that {var} before you call the {view:view_name}

Thank you very much!
Excuse further questions:
1) When you said:
"Your reloading event then needs to set the value of that {var} before you call the {view:view_name}"
You mean I need to create an Ajax event to reload the selected value, on change of dropdown 1?
2) Tab Event - Designer: I've find no documentation on it. It seems is not to be used in my case, but I'd like to learn about it. Can you suggest a link to docs?
Thank you for your help!

Sorry I've just realised you're using the old v5. I don't know anything about that, sorry.
