I know dependent dropdowns have been discussed over and over again but my problem is slightly different.... I searched but i couldn't find. Someone please help me out here.... I am using Jdeveloper 10.1.2 with Struts and JSP , ADF BC. NO AJAX ( Could use it but can't afford more time than i have already used)
1.Ok dependent dropdowns - What i have currently done is onchange go to the action class and execute my child dropdown's view object by giving where caluse param as the value selected in parent dropdown. Now this was fine if I had only two dropdowns on my page. But my form has about 7 dropdowns, 6 radio buttons and lots more. Its an application form. Everytime I slect one of the dropdown it reloads which is costly plus I am executing the view object a lot...
Well on page submit you can call a function to select all of the values in the list so they are submitted to the server.
You can make a hidden textbox on the page that has a comma deliminated version of the values in your select box. When the user moves something over you recalculate the hidden's value.

Thanks for replying. Is this in reply for how to store the values? Then in the second option, my problem is each dropdown has atleast 20 values. to write a comma seperated combination for each is going to be tough. About the first option not sure, what you mean?
