Cascading drop down menus - help please !

Ian
Can anyone help me with a problem I have. What I need to be able to do
is have the user presented with a single dropdown menu within a form
using HTML <SELECT> and <OPTION>. Once they choose a particular option I
then want another dropdown to appear alongside it with a list of options
that are dependent on what was selected in the first dropdown. Then I
want the same thing to happen a third time, i.e when the user selects an
option from the second dropdown a third one appears on the screen to the
right of it and then whatever the user chooses from this final dropdown
is used in the form submission.

Because I am a complete beginner it would be really useful to have an
actual code example that I could then modify with my own options.

Would really appreciate help with this.

Drop-down menus are the hottest thing since Wonder Bread but . . . 1.

Some people think they take up too much KB. 3. Some people are worried that people who have javascript turned off wont be able to see them. What percent of web users have javascrips turned off?

I found this script for cascading menus, however, I cannot reach the author to solve the bug I am having when I add a second menu to it. My problem is this: If I click on the first link, the menu displays well. If I then click on the second link, the first menu from the first link still displays. How do I get make the first menu disappear when I click on the second and vice versa? Please help...thanks.

Not sure if this has been covered ( a google search came up pretty bare). I have a site that: - has multi-level cascading menus - floats center of the browser window - Will have fairly heavy Safari and Firefox views (~25%) Finding a cascading menu is easy, I trip over about half a dozen of those a week. The problem is when you maximize on a big screen in

I have an old web application I did where browsers with dynamic capabilities received a drop down menu on the top of the page and a fold out on the left hand side of the page and non-dynamic browsers received two static menus. This was done via server side detection of browser capabilities and branching the application. Over time needless to say the capabilities between the dynamic and static sides got seriously out of whack. Now the...

Hello, friends, I was asked to implement a .aspx page with drop down menus. When a mouse pointer moves over a menu bar, a drop down list containing sub-menus will show up.

Hi everyone, Please let there be someone out there who can help. I have two BOUND combo boxes on a continuous form, the second being dependent on the first. I have no problem getting the second combo to change depending on what values the user selects in the first box, it's just that every time the user changes the first combobox, the second combobox FOR EVERY RECORD goes blank.

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,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
