[rt-users] 'Select multiple' CF based on another 'select multiple' CF

Hi all,

I tried to configure two 'select multiple' CFs, one based on another (e.g. 
"affected components/subcomponents"). So, I have options A, B and C in CF #1 
and options A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, B3, C1, C2, C3 in CF #2 (with A1..3 dependent 
on category A, and so on).

All works fine as long as a single entry is selected in CF #1. If I select 
more than one, however, only one group is displayed in CF #2.

E.g., if I select ABC in CF #1, CF #2 displays A1, A2, A3. Same if I select AB 
or AC. If I select BC in CF #1, CF #2 displays B1, B2, B3.

I would expect that CF #2 would display all applicable suboptions; e.g. if BC 
is selected in CF #1, CF #2 would display B1, B2, B3, C1, C2, C3.

Is it the intended behavior?

It looks like the javascript code in /Elements/EditCustomFieldSelect needs to 
pass the element (basedon) to filter_cascade(). In /NoAuth/js/cascaded.js, 
filter_cascade() needs to check if element allows for multiple selection and 
add perform the "for (i in complete_children)" loop for each of the selected
