Web Part Connections question

  Asked By: Ty    Date: Jul 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1932

I have been working on using the web part connection functionality
in WSS. I have 2 webparts on a page that are displaying list
information. Web part "a" is to be automatically filtered based on
a secection within web part "b".

I would like to be able to set the web part "a" to be blank by
default and not show any info until a selection has been made in web
part "b". Does anyone know if this is possible, and if so how to do

Within Browser, On Web Part header, Click on small drop down arrow head on
right and go to Modify Web Part to open WP Property Sheet.

Under Miscellaneous uncheck the box "Send first row to connected Web Parts
when page  loads"

Click Apply and OK

I think that "Send first row to connected Web Parts when page  loads" is only
available on Data View Web Parts (DVWP).

I don't think that List View Web Parts (LVWP) support the first row on page
load option. Not where I can test it out.

It is not an option when you drop a LVWP on a page  but it is an available
option for LVWP when converted to XLST Data View.

Right. Hence, it is only available on DVWP.
