    I was actually doing a search when I wrote the question and it posted. However, what ai am looking for it to limit what is visible in a drop down based on the selction in another drop down. For example i have item 1 and 2 in the frist drop down, I want it to show items 1-4 in the second if item is picked in the first field and items 3-4 if item 2 is picked.

    Technically the only way to do that would be to play around with the use of a couple of dropdown boxes with the answers separated between them and that may take some time as my colleague previously suggested to you.

    An alternate suggestion that I would like to point out is the AutoComplete Widget. It works similar to how a dropdown is in a sense but it will only show what is close to what you are actually searching for instead of everything at once unless you are using answers that are closely tied together.

    If you don't want to go with that and you'd rather have the 4 dropdowns that is fine but we would like to know if you have form you are working and intend to use this on and we will try to help guide you along more if you need it.
