You're correct. There isn't a way to point the form to the iProperty and have a list, at least not that I'm aware of.
Therefore we need to use the paramter list in the form, and hand the value from the paramter to the iProperty. I used a model parameter in the example, but you could also use a user parameter if a model parameter would not work.
The iLogic forms have some limitations compared to standard VB userforms, but I'm not sure why certain option are included / not included for the controls.
I hope this helps.

blah I'll just stick with the ugly inputbox rules I've already got..
use row and place the perameters in there if i put 3 there would be 3 columns and so on. Here is a pic. and don't give me credit some one showed me..
I'm trying to do a similar code that dynamically updates a drop down menu with the selection of a primary criteria from a drop down menu. Looking at the Parameters menu it works flawlessly. When attempting to do it via a Form it doesn't work. I don't get the second menu as a drop down but only as a text field for input. What am I missing?

edit: NVM, had to re-add the field after the coding.
