Hi,

I have 2 drop down in the jsp page.
The first drop down is dynamically populated

The second drop down will be populated depending on the selection in the first one.

The second drop down title should be Select XXX Type where XXX is the value selected in the first drop down
I am having the id of the first selected drop down and i am sending the id to the Action Class

How would i get the value of that particular id ?

This one of our most asked question.
Search this, and the HTML forum (Google too) with keywords:
"Dependent dropdown" or "cascading dropdown" and you will find plenty of discussion on the subject.

Why the uncessessary use of eval()?

Also this example does not account for the fact that the values in the secondary dropdown depend upon the selected value.

True eval is unnecessary ..

Hi,
So, your first drop down is being populated by a server call. right. In the Select tag, give the javascript function, like
<Select name="firstDropDown" onChange="displaySecondDropDownList()">
<option ..></option>
in the javascript function,
function displaySeconDropDownList(){
var selectedValue = document.forms[0].firstDropDown.options[selectedIndex].value
then take a hidden variable and assign this value to that variable and set in the corresponding form.
Then invoke the action class, and get the corresponding second dropdown list values from the database based on this selected value. :-)
