can [if , then ] only be used inside of a search string (w/eval) ?
im asking coz i have a dual drop down setup. The first dropdown has 4 options.
While the second dropdown only has 1 value, w/c will display as "ALL".
HOwever, the value of this "ALL" will depend on the choice in the first dropdown.
In your XML, you can set tokens that would redefine the meaning of "ALL" based on the other choices. But there might be an even easier way to do what you want. As @DalJeanis suggested, it would be helpful to see more about what you want to do. I would like to see the field set part of your XML, plus the searches you want to run, and a description of the variants.
But if you want to figure it out for yourself, then I recommend these resources:
