I have a bewildering issue with a webpart page in my SP 2010 site. In it, a customized DataFormWebPart is connected to an XSLTListViewWebPart. Both are sourced from the same library -- the DataFormWebPart is customized to only show each ClientName field once.
When the page loads, the first clientname is selected and only matching documents are shown in the List View-- this is the expected behavior.
When I select another hyperlinked client name, however, the filtering fails, and all the documents are shown for every client.
However, the Filter Icon still appears over the ClientName field in the ListView Webpart, and I can even see that the check mark is correctly placed next to the correct item in the drop-down list. Even the "Clear Filter From ClientName" message is enabled.
But the items are not being filtered -- all clients' items are being shown!!
If I click again on the chosen client-name, it works. Nice, but defeats the purpose.
This site was converted from moss but I haven't been able to do the visual upgrade- don't know if that matters.
I could switch to a querystring filter I suppose, but I thought I'd put this out there to see if anyone else had seen it.
