They have two attributes on promotion – promotion type and mechanic. They want the drop down of Mechanic to be restricted by the selection made for promotion type. Both of these are mandatory columns in the ‘New Promotion’ Method.
When they select a member for Promotion type, the mechanic is defaulted with a value "(None)". If the user submits the form, the promotion gets created with -1 value in Mechanic. The value -1 is not a valid value.
