Filtering Dependent Picklist Values in ComboBox

Introduction

The Avonni ComboBox component can display a list of selectable options, including dependent picklist values. However, you may only want the ComboBox active when dependent picklist values are available.

This tutorial will guide you through enabling the Avonni ComboBox component only when dependent picklist values are set.

Prerequisites

  • Avonni Components must be installed in your Salesforce organization.

  • Basic familiarity with Salesforce Flow Builder.

  • A Salesforce object with a dependent picklist field set up.

Step-by-Step Guide

Step1: Creating a formula to evaluate if DependentPicklistValues

  1. Explanation: This formula checks the DependentPicklistValues collection.

    • If it's empty (ISBLANK returns TRUE), the ComboBox will be disabled (formula returns TRUE).

    • If it contains values (ISBLANK returns FALSE), the ComboBox will be enabled (formula returns FALSE).

By using this formula, you ensure that the ComboBox reacts dynamically to the contents of the DependentPicklistValues collection.

Step 2: Set up the "Disabled" Property Formula

  1. Click on the "Avonni ComboBox" component you added.

  2. In the right panel, locate the "Disabled" property.

  3. Select the formula created previously:

This formula checks if the DependentPicklistValues collection is empty. If it is empty, the ComboBox will be disabled (TRUE). Otherwise, it will be enabled (FALSE).

Step 3: Save and Test Your Flow

  1. Save your changes in the Flow Builder.

  2. Run a few tests to ensure the ComboBox is working as expectedโ€”disabled when no dependent values are enabled otherwise.

Conclusion

You've successfully configured the Avonni ComboBox component to be enabled only when dependent picklist values are set. This enhances the user experience by preventing unnecessary or invalid selections. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have further questions or encounter any issues.
