Populating three list boxes from the database

Can anybody help?
I need to have three list boxes automatically populating each other, (ie
when region is selected from the first listbox, it will populate
automatically the second one which is the TOWNS and when the town is
selected is should populate the third one AREA) all data is in the database
in one table.
Any idea???
Many thanks in adavance.

Are you using ASP or ASPX?
With ASPX you set the autpostback = true and use the
event selectedindexch anged of the dropdown or list.
With old ASP, you have to identify wich dropdown list was
changed. Make a javascript the gets the dropdown value
and wich dropdown was selected
(http://www.site.com/code=90&drop=a). Then you can build
the next one and so far.

I'm looking for thoughts on the "correct" design for this problem (DotNet 2.0 - in winforms, but that's not so important). I've got two combo boxes (combo1 and combo2), both are populating via database calls (using a separate DB handler class). "combo1" contains a list of countries and is fairly static, it can be added to but no other external events cause a change in its population. "combo2" however is populated with a list of options...

I have 3 tables of information feeding into 4 combo boxes on my main form (DR Form). I have as many list boxes (acting as text boxes) as there are fields in each one of the 3 tables. Once selecting from the combo box, I have all the combo boxes, using afterupdate, populating their respective list boxes. These text boxes are directly correlated to the combo box selection using SQL. Here is an example from the afterupdate event in the...

Hi, I have a form with three combo boxes: Area, Sub-Area, and Factor. I've set up the Sub-Area combo box to list only those areas that are part of the selected area. I've set up the Factor combo box to list only those factors that are part of the selected sub-area. For example, if I select area 1.0, the Sub-Area combo box displays 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 as options. It does not show 2.1, 3.1, etc. If I select area 2.0, the Sub-Area combo box...

Hi i am having trouble with the following problem any help would be appreciated:: The gridview starts off with empty text boxes for input along with already populated dropdowns to choose from for input. This is all fine, but when it has saved and needs to be called back to the same gridview how do i get it to choose from the dropdown list the choice that was in the database.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
