default dependent picklist value

Hi, how can i default a dependent picklist value if there is only one value?

for example, i have controling picklist value of A,B,C and dependent picklist value of 1,2,3,6,7,8

A - 1,2,3
B - 6
C - 7,8

so when i select B my dependent picklist will automatically show 6 instead of None and need to choose again since there is only onle value there.

Hi, You can achieve this by making dependent field as required.

Hi, 

In that case, you have to add another value "None" to the Picklist Field B. 

So that when you drop down on B - you will have 6 and "None" two optios available.

Hi, 

Go to the path below to change the default Value. 

Go to Setup | SObject | Fields  | Field Name | Under Picklist Values |  Click on Edit beside the default Value  | Uncheck the check Box | Default Make this value the default for the master picklist | Save

Making it required works in Classic.  However, even when required it does not work in Lightning.  Does anyone know how to get this to work in Lightning.  If only one option and required, it would be much more user friendly to have it selected.
