Dependent Dropdown eroor

Path Finder

Hello all,
I have 2 dropdown one is parent dropdown and other is the dependent child dropdown.
dropdown1 has values-a,b,c
dropdown2(child dropdown)- is hidden and gets unhidden when user select b value of dropdown 1

Now the scenario is->
suppose dropdown2 has items->p,q,r in it (in which p is the default value and initial value)

when b is selected-> dropdown2 gets unhidden and shows the default value p
->now we change Dropdown2 value to q
now c is selected-> Dropdown2 gets unhidden (it is working correctly till now)

now b is selected again->now default value p should appear but last selected value q is getting selected.

@ajitshukla61116 ,

On the change event of parent while you are setting the token to display child dropdown, set the token of child dropdown to "p"

ie. <set token="form.child">p</set>

Here is the example

  <label>Dependent Dropdowns</label>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="dropdown" token="parent">
      <choice value="a">a</choice>
      <choice value="b">b</choice>
        <condition value="b">
          <set token="show_child">true</set>
          <set token="form.child">p</set>
          <unset token="show_child"></unset>
    <input type="dropdown" token="child" depends="$show_child$">
      <choice value="p">p</choice>
      <choice value="q">q</choice>
