Update Select in a repeater based on value of other select

  • Using the state and city dynamic select fields example (, I have an events page (equivalent of city cpt) with a select field (event_type) populated by rows (_event_type) in a repeater (_event_types) on an options page (equivalent of state cpt).

    On Posts, I have a repeater (p_events) with 2 select boxes in 2 columns:

    | p_event_type | p_event |

    I would like to populate p_event with events from the events page depending on the selected event type on p_event_type. p_event_type is populated by rows from the repeater on the options page.

    public function __construct() {
    	// event type field on event 
    	add_action('acf/load_field/key=field_579376941cecc', array($this, 'load_event_type_field_choices'));
    	// event type field on post
    	add_action('acf/load_field/key=field_579376f522130', array($this, 'load_event_type_field_choices'));
    	// event field on post
    	add_action('acf/load_field/key=field_5793770922131', array($this, 'load_event_field_choices'));
    public function load_event_type_field_choices($field) {
    	// this function dynamically loads the event type select field choices
    	// from the event types on options page repeater
    public function load_event_field_choices($field) {
    	// this function dynamically loads event field choices
    	// based on the currently saved event type
    	// I only want to do this on Posts
    	global $post;
    	if (!$post || !isset($post->ID) || get_post_type($post->ID) != 'post') {
    		return $field;
    	// get the selected event type by row
    	$repeater = 'p_events';
    	$count = intval(get_post_meta($post->ID, $repeater, true));
    	for ($i=0; $i<$count; $i++) {
                    $event_type = get_post_meta($post->ID, $repeater.'_'.$i.'_'.'p_event_type', true);
                    $events = $this->get_events($event_type);
                    $field['choices'] = $events;
                    return $field;
