    Hello

    could someone help me with the following ?

    I need to create dropdowns in the following manner:

    the first dropdown holds differnet names eg. Alfa Romeo, once the user selects a name, a second dropdown is created with eg. model types, once a selection is made form that, a third and last dropdown is created with eg. engine size. Once all 3 are selected, the specs are printed in tables...

    Has anyone done this already ?

    thank in advance
    Gianni

    errr if you want the dropdowns to be truely 'dynamic' then you probably want DHTML http://www.bratta.com

    Here is an example of what you are wanting. I use this on a few customer sites myself. Code is kinda dirty, need to do some clean up but you should get the idea from the example. Good luck :-)

    I'd created some dynamic dropdown menus and they worked fine with MS Internet Explorer. However, Netscape requires a "history.go(0)" at the end of the JavaScript to refresh the document. The problem is that the statement would refresh the PHP document and return me to a fresh page again. Is there any way to avoid using "history.go(0)"?
