17959form parameter dependencies and value assist
- Nov 10, 2011hello philippe.
> Dynamically communicating constraints on allowable values for expansions in a declarative way is sure an interesting problem.indeed it is. have you considered dependencies in your scenario? one use
case we have all of the time is the "GET initial form; GET list of
countries, wait for country to be filled out; GET list of states; wait
for state to be filled out; GET list of cities; pick city; PUT/POST
form" pattern, in all sorts and shapes. i am wondering whether there is
some consensus about how to deal with this as declaratively as possible,
or whether anybody is just happily scripting all of this.
