Country State City Drop Down List

Michael Damato Jul 18, 2007


This is a simple international country, state, and city drop down list that automatically repopulates the state section based on the country selected, and automatically repopulates the city section based on the state selected. All of this is done without reloading the page. This script could also be used in other formats, e.g., automobiles: type/make/model; or books: publisher/author/title.

Make your selection



Format for State lists

  • states['Country1'] = new Array('State1','State2','State3');
  • states['Country2'] = new Array('State1','State2','State3');

Format for City lists

  • cities['Country1'] = new Array();
  • cities['Country1']['State1'] = new Array('City1','City 2');
  • cities['Country1']['State2'] = new Array('City1','City 2');
  • cities['Country2'] = new Array();
  • cities['Country2']['State1'] = new Array('City1','City 2');
  • cities['Country2']['State2'] = new Array('City1','City 2');

You can use a web service like to generate the code and have it query a database in the cloud. Much easier than coding everything yourself unless you want to. It has a few extra features and the database is kept current.
