I have three columns in one list only, i want to implement cascading between three of them using jquery.

Fields are:

  1. Family - Choice field

  2. Category - single line of text

  3. Sub-Category - single line of text

Task- when i select value from family, category should be filled with values otherwise no. Next i will select value from category, sub-category should be filled with values.

Would request everyone to help/guide me on this. Thank you in advance.



  • How would Category Column be filled with multiple values and how would you select one of them if you are going to use it as Single Line of Text Column? – Yayati Sep 11 '17 at 6:51
  • Yes Yayati, you are true, but the same thing i have implemented in infopath, now i am developing the form using spforms with the same functionality. When it is possible in infopath, can't be done in spforms tool using jquery? – Ramanjjilu Naidu Sep 11 '17 at 10:43

You can have 2 options for this

1.Use REST query to get data from SharePoint list, add it in object and show in dropdown list, for second dropdown, use first item as filter in REST query and so on ..

2.Second easiest option is to use SP Serivces.

SPServices Cascading dropdown


  • Second is not a dropdown sir, it is a single line of text. Thank you – Ramanjjilu Naidu Sep 11 '17 at 3:05
