Value dependency is one of the field properties in Master Layout. This feature allows you to define the condition to show or hide the particular field’s value. By default, the values found in drop down is visible in all conditions.

Note: Make sure that value dependency is applicable for drop down attributes.


Lets take a quick look at the following steps.

  2. Click on More(...) icon -> Settings -> Customize App -> Master Layout
  3. Click on the particular field to set value dependency. Note: Click on drop down field to set value dependency.
  4. You will view the inspector column at the right side in which you would find the field properties.
