I have 2 combo boxes (DROP DOWN MENUS) I am filtering the options displayed in the second drop-down menu based on the option selected in the first drop-down menu.
I had used some alert boxes for debugging while writing the code. Once the code was working fine, I removed the alert boxes. Strangely the filtering stopped working and the second-drop down menu started displaying the default option instead of the options based on the filtering logic.
If i put an alert box before the code that has the filtering logic (basically a for loop), the options are filtered correctly.
Does the alert box have any impact on refreshing the values of combo boxes (in the view mode)??? Is there something that can be done to avoid this problem?
