[FX.php List] Value Lists problem displaying related fields ONLY on web

Hi Michael,

This has always been the case. The web call does not create any  
relationship on which to base the contents of the popup.

You could use a combination of PHP and JavaScript to construct a  
popup that is filtered by input into another form field, or you could  
use XMLHttpRequest (aka AJAX) to send and receive data to feed drop- 
down or type-ahead capability.

Hope this helps,
