I need some help on dynamic drop down menu with calculation values for email to send.
dropdown 1 had below value
Now based on my dropdown values, I need to show values for each options.
for dropdown 1 Vegetables selection
for dropdown 2 fruits selection
for dropdown 3 dry fruits selection
do not want to use show and hide based on dropdown 1 selection please as I need 10 line and do not want to create 30 drop boxes to show and hide based on selection, it slows down form randomization I have tried it.

In that case, maybe a Dynamic dropdown widget would work for you:
Where you can set options by nesting them:
And here is how it works:

hi is it possible to have multiple drop down for 2nd drop down.
for ex. if I select vegetable. I get 3 drop down instead 1 to select.

Unfortunately, that is not possible. However, you can nest additional sub-options to the second dropdown that will create additional dropdown field.

can I do dynamic selection on Vegetales.
if I select text1 can I have group A selection and on text2 , group B gets selected. do we have any property which I can set ?

Since you're using regular drop-down field and widget, that is not possible to do with that setup, like in your test form.
The workaround would be to break the widget in two:
And then show them conditionally based on the text selection:

Let us know how that worked for you.

can we use CSS to select value in drop down 1 and show / hide values in drop down 2.
- JotForm SupportAdrianAnswered on January 21, 2018 at 06:23 PM
You cannot use CSS to select a value in a drop-down and you cannot use CSS to show/hide options in a dropdown based on the selected option of the first drop-down because you don't know which option was selected.
Let us know if you have further questions.
- houacctAnswered on January 21, 2018 at 07:01 PM
we can keep default values if need to.

However, in your case, since you want to use widgets dropdowns, I would say that the best solution would be to use regular dropdowns and conditional logic to show/hide them properly.
Let us know if that could work.
