Hi Folks,

The example for the Parameter property named 'Obtained from' gives 1 example of how this can be used for input parameters.  'Field' can be obtained from tables.

To see this example, search on 'Obtained from' on this page

Looks like this: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/0015/GUID-32501207-F19F-4C25-9DBE-5AF1CA6FC83F-web.png

The same trick works for feature classes and shapefiles, but not for raster datasets.

Can you tell me any other Data types (other than field) where this can be used to auto-populate based on another input parameter?
