This is in reference to URLy Bird search by hotel name and location. I started with the editable combo box which had a list from the DB. When my wife saw the design, she suggested that the location drop down should dynamically repsond to the value selected in the name combo box.
E.g - Case 1) If Hotel name is ANY, then build the list of all locations (ANY will also be an option)
Case 1) If Hotel name is HILTON, then build the list of all locations that this hotel is present (ANY will also be an option).
This will avoid any confusion what so ever after the results are shown (if there are none) and will also apply defensive design. I really liked the idea. The question is, will this be an overkill for the exam.
