Hi,

I need some directions on making a ajax call on selecting an option from one select box so that the other select box options should be updated according to the option selected.

Example:

If i select "A" in one select box. The other select box should have Names starting with "A".

Please give me some reference or directions in doing this. Thank you.

Assuming you will use jQuery (highly recommended over doing it "by hand") download the free example code for my book.. The code for chapter 8 has examples for cascading drop downs.
