How to Load an Input of MultiValue Parameter Based on First Input Select

Question asked by behClevest on Oct 17, 2018

I am trying to create a Python Toolbox and I need to load some chekboxes to a parameter (param2) after selecting a value in previous parameter (param1). As you can see I have name of states in param1 and need to load a code like this after changing on param1

inFeature = parameters[0].valueAsText
slectedCounty = parameters[1].valueAsText
counties = []
def unique_values(table , field):
    with arcpy.da.SearchCursor(table, [field], '"NAME_1" = \''+slectedCounty+'\'') as cursor:
         return sorted({row[0] for row in cursor})
uniques = unique_values(inFeature, 'NAME_2')
for unique in uniques:
    counties.append(unique)
# Now Load the checkboxes
param1.filter.list = counties

Here is the code

def getParameterInfo(self):
    """Define parameter definitions"""
    param0 = arcpy.Parameter(displayName="Feature Class",name="in_fc", datatype="Shapefile", parameterType="Required", direction="Input")
    param1 = arcpy.Parameter(displayName="States",name="st",datatype="String", multiValue="False", parameterType="Required", direction="Input")
    param1.filter.list = ['Alabama','Alaska','American Samoa','Arizona','Arkansas','California','Colorado','Connecticut','Delaware','District of Columbia','Federated States of Micronesia','Florida','Georgia','Guam','Hawaii','Idaho','Illinois','Indiana','Iowa','Kansas','Kentucky','Louisiana','Maine','Marshall Islands','Maryland','Massachusetts','Michigan','Minnesota','Mississippi','Missouri','Montana','Nebraska','Nevada','New Hampshire','New Jersey','New Mexico','New York','North Carolina','North Dakota','Northern Mariana Islands','Ohio','Oklahoma','Oregon','Palau','Pennsylvania','Puerto Rico','Rhode Island','South Carolina','South Dakota','Tennessee','Texas','Utah','Vermont','Virgin Island','Virginia','Washington','West Virginia','Wisconsin','Wyoming']
    param2 = arcpy.Parameter(displayName="Counties",name="countyName",datatype="String", multiValue="true", parameterType="Required", direction="Input")

    params = [param0, param1, param2]
    return params

def isLicensed(self):
    """Set whether tool is licensed to execute."""
    return True

def updateParameters(self, parameters):
    """Modify the values and properties of parameters before internal
    validation is performed.  This method is called whenever a parameter
    has been changed."""

    return
