    Post Need definitive answer (Dropdowns)

    Hi,

    Can someone please tell me what is the best way (definitive answer) to create dynamic dropdowns.

    ie dropdown 2 depends on what has been selected in dropdown 1.
    with the info stored in mysql tables

    Some people say use Javascript others say don't, some say reload the page using php (not sure what they mean by this).

    I am new enough to this stuff so could someone explain to me what I need to do.

    This problem is really slowing up my current development so I would be most grateful for guidance.

    Regards

    Graham

    If you are displaying in the client window use javascript because it will not take server time.

    if you are taking if from database go with php stuff..
