Property Tab Builder Conditional Lists

Property Tab Builder supports the use of conditional lists. This feature lets you define and administer lists once, and eliminate errors by automating the population of dependent properties.

For example, you can create a parent list of different materials and a second set of lists of finishes, where the availability of a finish is dependent on the selection of a material. Users select a material, then select a finish from the options that are available for their material.

You can implement conditional lists by:

  • Specifying a set of radio buttons, a check box, or another list as a parent to a list control.
  • Creating a group list, where the first list is automatically created as the parent.
