HCM forms and Processes - Adobe


I am working on HCM forms and processes( not QISRs ). I want to populate a drop down list based on the selection of another dropdown list, how can we acheive this in Adobe forms. Should I go about configuring some back end generic service? if so how will the backend service get triggered based on my selection.. Any idea on this is highly appreciated

    1.populate first Dropdown with values and when drop down value is changed write a adobe script on chnage method on dropdown element such that it will call back end system( custome generic service .check adode help 2 line of standard code for round trip ). custome generic service BADI , Fill the second dropdown vlaues by read and passing first dropdown selected value as key value while hitting the table.

    3. so every round trip all the " get help vlaues" method will call so second drop down values will fill/fillter automatically based on u r first dropdown selection.

    Hi Aakash,

    You can achieve this through BAPI. Ask ABAP guys to write a BAPI which takes dropdown selected value as an input and return the desired output.
