Here is a good example of dynamically populating objects with choicelists, in this case it is a listbox, but it could be applied to dropdownlist boxes also: http://blogs.adobe.com/formfeed/2009/10/populating_list_boxes_1.html

This is the scripting I tried to use  in the first dropdown list and it doesn't work, any HELP would be appreciated.

form1.#subform[0].DropDownList1::exit - (JavaScript, client)

if(this.rawValue=="a")

{

DropDownList2a.presence = "visible";

DropDownList2b.presence = "hidden";

DropDownList2c.presence = "hidden";

}

else if (this.rawValue == "b")

{

DropDownList2a.presence = "hidden";

DropDownList2b.presence = "visible";

DropDownList2c.presence = "hidden";

}

else if (this.rawValue == "c")

{

DropDownList2a.presence = "hidden";

DropDownList2b.presence = "hidden";

DropDownList2c.presence = "visible";

}

Thanks in advance

Yes, you can do that. Depending upon the selection made in any dropdown, by the use of change/exit event you can always use addItem() functionality to add items in dependent dropdown.

Thanks,

Bibhu.
