I am wondering if there is a way to do field value maps that are filtered based on another attribute field? I know how to associate value maps, but not that are connected to another field.

I have two fields in a table Type and Subtype. Type will have three values: Trees, Bushes, and Flowers.

The Subtypes will have different values. ie:

 Subtype for trees would be conifer and deciduous
 Subtype for flowers would be roses, daisies, and sunflowers
 Subtype for bushes would be blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry

What I want is when Trees is selected from Type, only conifer and deciduous are available from subtype; etc...

Not at the moment, but this is a planned for 2.1 or 2.2.

You only option at the moment is a custom form with some Python logic to handle that kind of thing.
