We're using the 'mass update and edit' salesforce app off the appexchange for mass editing accounts and I'm looking for a way to dynamically display the dependent picklist based on the controlling picklist selection on the mass edit grid. Has anyone done this before and could you please provide some sample code or guidance on how to accomplish this? The mass edit page is 'standard controlled' with no extensions.

Thanks in advance :)

  • What have you tried so far? Could you post a sample of your code as you have modified it? I believe the mass update app uses a standard pageblocktable format to render the records, which likely could not be updated in the manner you describe. The page would likely need to be completely rewritten, using a repeat tag, and some mechanism for uniquely identifying each row (otherwise, every change on the controlling field might update all of the records in the table. – JimRae Feb 18 '15 at 20:18

I'm not sure how to do it on the "mass update and edit" app but I can tell you that on the smart-mass-update app it works fine. I have create 2 screenshots of the mass-update & mass edit for dependent picklist (from my Salesforce).
