Dynamic dropdown list

Dynamic dropdown list

Dynamic dropdown list

Environment: Developer Studio 5.2
I created a report which requires  "Country", "Area", "Region", "Branch" parameters to work. These parameters are hierarically related.
I inserted this procedure in the "Resource Layout Painter".
Now, I made the values for those parameters to be displayed in the drop-down list box dynamically for the database.
Everything is fine until now.
All I want to do is the data in the second drop-down list should change depending upon the data on the first drop-down list.
i.e., when I select a country say "USA" from the first drop-down list, the 'Area' drop-down list should populate only those areas in "USA", and when I select a area say "SOUTH WEST" in the 'area' drop-down list, the 'region' drop-down list should populate with the areas in "SOUTH WEST" and so on...
I contacted the IBI people and they said that WF cannot handle it, and it should be implemented coding the HTML file that is generated by the "Resource Layout Painter". I think javascript is good for this. I have no idea how to proceed.
I can send the project file and the HTML file that I am working on if you mail me at webfocusraj@yahoo.com
Please help me.
