I'm working on something that requires you to have menu driven options, meaning the selection in dropdown menu 1, drives what is show in dropdown menu 2. The catch is I need to be able to populate dropdown menu 2 with out actually submiting the page. So i figured I would create something in Javascript that creates arrays (using coldfusion), then populates the menu with those arrays. I can't quite seem to get something to work. Does anyone have any code snippets or skelton code that does this? One "gotchya" I seem to run into is the fact that my select option value is different from what the option displays (ie <option value="1">Ford</option> )

Thanks for your help!
