BDC connection problem BY DESIGN

Jan 28, 2009 at 1:40 PM

 It will be great help if you can give me some solution for below:

I have two BDC Related List web parts A and B, connected to one BDC Related List web part C,which is connected to BDC list webpart D. When I select value in D, it in turn display some values in C,when I select in C it shows related values in A & B.
   Issue is, when I select Value in D, it shows the list in C webPart with no one selected in C. But A & B shows the previous related value of selected in C web Part.
    I dont want that, if there is no value selected in C, A & B should not show any value .
  How to achive that.
  If above is not possible, can it be possible that when we select any item in D, it will populate C web part,also it select 1st item in C web part automatically.

I am afraid this solution isnt done OOB. However, I believe it can be achieved programmatically though.

It can solved by designing it in a different way.
I believe it is 2  levels of drill down
Have only single level of Drill down on one page. Use Custom actions ( using Another page and Query filter), or Profile page of one of the web parts to take users to next level of drill down.

Previous Scenario

                              |-------------> A
D -Connect---> C |
                              |-------------> B
New Scenario
D ----------> C (link to new Page or Profile Page)    
                                 |                                                                                                                                    |------------>A
                            (New Page/Profile Page of C)  ----(Connect Profile Or Single Item Web Part to)  ---- |
                                                                                                                                                                      | -----------> B
