Populating three list boxes from the database

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by Lamine Darbouche, Oct 6, 2003.

  1. 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 selectedindexchanged 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.
