Multi-Value Drop Down List 2

Kiran Pai Jul 16, 2008


This script provides a selection in a dropdown menu, determined by the user's previous selection. Easy to implement and customize. Could be used with other dynamic languages, such as JSP or ASP. The arrays could be created by information fetched from a database.

Nice addition to scripting code[br /][br /]I modified it slightly to read in external JS file of data[br /]to make it easier for upkeep without changing main code.[br /][br /]Good job!

Thanks for the script. This is a great effect for many hierarchical choices: cities in states, divisions within companies.[br /]I think you should handle the case where the user picks the "Select One" choice after having selected "Blues" or "Rock" previously. We typically clear the second select's choices. Or you might remove the "Select One" choice after "Blues" or "Rock" is chosen.
