use AJAX,Thats the best possible solution as you are trying to communicate between server and client without submitting or refreshing the page.

Do a serach for double combo or linked selects. There should be plenty of examples with postbacks or with Ajax.

Hi Rajesh,

Please do the following in the Select box html code call a javascript which takes the selected value from drop box and based on this Call the struts Action or what ever you are calling to refresh the Page.

eg

<select name="demo" onChange="refreshPage(this)">
<option value="1"> 1</option>
<option value="2"> 2</option>
</select>

Note this is just an idea that i am providing I dont have any live example to give you right now.

Also, to avoid confusion, you should stop calling it a "combo box". A combo box is a type of UI control that is not available on the web. Call it a dropdown or a select.
