Every time I change the item type based on the dialog list choice I want my item options to change to the list for the item type. I have tried call uidoc.refresh and uidoc.save in the exiting event of the item type field, but it doesn't work -- it didn't change the item options.
Note: If the user has already selected a value in the itemOptions field, that value will remain selected after the refresh even if it is no longer a valid selection. To fix this you would need an input translation formula in itemOptions that checks whether the current field value is valid, and if not, sets the field to "". E.g.: valid_choices := @DbLookup(""; ...; itemType;...); @If(@IsError(valid_choices; ""; @Keywords(valid_choices; @ThisValue))
