Dropdown problem

I have to create a dropdown box based on a selection in another drop down on the same page.

I mean to say if a dropdown A has a selection "1" then only dropdown B should show otherwise not.
Disabling B would also work and enable it only when dropdown A has a selection "1".

Any ideas how to do which functions should be used. Code would be appreciated.

Hi Nee,
you could use the onchange-event to set the display from "none" to "inline" if the value is 1.
