    I've been trying to get my comboboxes cascading correctly using the guide on the Cascading ComboBoxes page and I think the information there may be incorrect. I wanted to use the approach where I set the parameters manually and copied the code at the very bottom of the page:

       cascadeFrom: "parent",
       dataTextField: "childName",
       dataValueField: "childID",
       dataSource: {
           transport: {
               read: {
                   url: "",
                   data: {
                       parentID: $("#parent").val()

    This doesn't work, since I believe parentID: $("#parent").val() is interpreted at set up time, rather than when cascading. The correct code for the data portion would be: 
    data: function() {
        parentID: $("#parent").val()

    In the answer there's a reference to the "How it works" section - I couldn't find this, could a link be provided if it still exists?
