    I want to create multiple dynamic list boxes on the same page and i want to make the list boxes
    dependant. My list boxes are Vehicle make, Vehicle model and Vehicle spec. What i would like my webpage to do is this:
    On selecting the Vehicle make from the first list box i would like it to only show the relevant Vehicle models for the Vehicle make that has been selected. On selecting the Vehicle model from the next list box i would like it to only show the relevant Vehicle Specs for the Vehicle model that has been selected. The fourth and final list box is Job type and this is not a dependant list box. I have tried some PHP examples but i am used to using dreamweaver and would prefer something that i can base around this. For example creating the list boxes in dreamweaver and having possibly javascript or php based around this. If anybody could provide me with a basic example of this or point me in the right direction it would be a great help.
    Thanks in advance for any help given!!!!

    You would need to use a combination of Javascript (XmlHttpRequest, is it?) and PHP. The javascript would cater for dynamically changing the list boxes and would link to a PHP script that contains the database queries.

    I'd look on google for AJAX dynamic list boxes, or something similar.

    Well, you could also do it in straight Javascript if you put all that information on the page to begin with. I have done that before.
