Cascading drop downs (or filtering contents of a drop down when selecting a value from another drop down)

Cascading drop-downs link two listings to each other so that selecting a value from the first list, automatically filters the data in the second one.

Auto-complete lookup fields

Does your lookup drop down look huge and take decades to load? Don't panic! When the source (parent) table of a lookup field contains thousands of records, you should use auto-complete lookups to avoid heavy pages and make it easier for users to select an item from the lookup field. Learn how through this video tutorial.

Video tour: Lookup fields and master/detail pages

Lookup fields (also called foreign keys) allow you to include data from a field in another field. For example, if you have a table that show a listing of books, and another table listing book categories, you can create a lookup field in the books table that lists the categories stored in the categories table. Lookups are a very powerful tool for data integrity and creating one-to-many relationships. Watch the video and learn how AppGini makes this very easy.
