RE: Dynamic DropDown list

forget to mentioned, that i get the values from sql statement in the fex-file.

RE: Dynamic DropDown list

You need a 2-step-method. There are (as allways) several solutions:

1. solution:
First fill the first box using a SQL-statement. Then, when the user selects a value in the first box, trip a second SQL-request and fill the second box with the corresponding values.
This will trip 2 requests to your DB and might seem to be inefficient. However it is very efficient.

2. solution:
First fill both the boxes with the values. In your javascript (client-side) you can deside wether a value is to be shown or not.
This is more complex on the client-side. And you still need to execute 2 SQL-statements to your DB.
