Popuplating Dropdown List From Database
I have a two dropdown lists (Job Catogory and Sub Job Catagory). The values are populated from the database in the following manner, when a user chooses a particular job catagory from the Job Catagory list, the corrosponding sub job catagories are populated into the Sub Job Catagory list. I am using asp as the server side script and sql server as the database. Now whats happening is that when a user chooses a particular job catagory, the form reloads and thn only the sub job catagory list is populated.Is there any way that this thing can be done without reloading the page.Someone told me it can be done through XML.
Can anybody help me out as I really dont know XML..

Just remembeer - there are soe threads within SitePoint 9and an Article I think) using xmlhttprequest Try searching for these. Might give you some ideas as using this technique (which I have not) does not require a complete page reload.
