A few days ago I submitted this question to stackoverflow: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3161708/sharepoints-new-folder-doesnt-ask-for-a-required-field
I essentially have Web Part Connections filter some documents through a required field. I was having problems making that new field for the folders. I managed to do it with help from a user over there.
It is all good and dandy, but now my problem is that whenever someone goes into the folder, the filter gets reset, and you're not able to re-select the same option you were just at. We were very confused for a few minutes when we were playing with it. Does anyone know a solution for this? perhaps a different kind of filter that would allow this? It is pretty important that the filter doesn't refresh when we go into the folder.
