renata, do not forget to let us know what r u doing eventually to make it
work. It is important.
Now, I tried to use arrays for the exact thing u r trying to do, but
eventually I left it, because it annoyed me to switch the array/str from
vbscript to jscript, and also I had long strings so it caused problems,
encoding and splitting stuff.
So I switched to another option, which I like less, but it is working for
on onChange event of the main select box, I kept the value of the selected
option and index, and sent it to the same asp page (with the values), and
then I requested these values, thus, selecting (again) the option the user
chose, and created the options for the "sub-selectbox" from the beginning
(don't forget I redirected to the same page, and this page is createing
the select boxes. If no values r sent (first time it is opened), then it
creates all options for both select boxes. But if a choise is made, than
according to the value recieved, I created the right options by using sql
statement, and entering the results to the options of the sub-select-box).
I hope I am clear.
