Record Type and Picklist: Select both in a single VF Page?

Hi All,


In a visualforce page, we can display picklist values based on the profile of logged in user and record type settings simply by using something like..

<apex:inputField id="testid" value="{!Case__c.Status__c}" />


However, I am seeking for some tips to achieve something like this in a single VF page...


- In picklist Field A, user will select one record type from a list of record types (These record types for an object would have already been configured in the back end) ...

- In the same page, another Picklist field B (whose values are dependent on the record type) gets populated with a list of values based on the record type selected in Field A...(The values displayed in Field B would have already been configured in the back end)....


Could it be done in a single VF page without or with the use of an extension?


Thanks in advance for any insights!!







<apex:page standardcontroller="Account"> <apex:form > <apex:pageBlock id="main"> <apex:pageBlockSection > <apex:inputField value="{!account.RecordTypeId}"> <apex:actionSupport event="onchange" reRender="Type"/> </apex:inputField> <apex:inputField value="{!account.Type}" id="Type"/> </apex:pageBlockSection> </apex:pageBlock> </apex:form> </apex:page>

 This code rerenders only the field type. Write reRender = "main" if you want to reRender the entire section.


Thank you for your insights Akram. Will test it out and be back with an update :)
