    How do I create a conditional drop down box?

    Asked by Dan on June 01, 2011 at 09:14 AM

    It is a locater form- doesn't need to be emailed anywhere to anyone.  Here's what needs to happen.  Please let me know if your site has the capacity to do this:

    1)  Please Select a Country (a dropdown list comes down with three countries to choose from.  They select one)

    2)  Once they pick that country, depending on which one they pick, question two displays territories within the country that they picked

    3)  Once they picked a territory, a list pops up with available locations within that territory.


    Important- I would need to be able to continually revise the locations as they are always changing.


    Does your site allow me to make one of these?  If so, how?  I've tried playing around with it, but I can't even get it to make a drop down menu for my first question.  I don't want to list the three countries.  I want it to drop down once they scroll over it with a mouse.


    Thanks for your time and attention!

    Best Regard,

    Hello Dan,

    You can achieve this by adding drop down boxes with the countries. Then add more dropdowns that correspond to the country they picked in the first dropdown.

    Please read this similar thread to learn how to do this.

    Let me know if you have further questions regarding that solution. Thank you.
