Hey Everyone,

Iím pretty good at figuring things out by searching online but I think on this one I just donít know how to described it correctly (use the right language).

I know itís fairly common, I want my site to have menus that people can select multiple items and based on their selections it returns specific information. For example if it was t-shirts, someone could selects Red, Blue, and Green from one list and Lg and Xl from another and it would return a list of all our products in those sizes and colors.

Thanks
-Justin

Hello drater66:

This will require scripting and database knowledge - One item is selected (clicked) from first list corresponding information is fetched from database and populates second grid and so on...

The more complicated way is to use a server-side scripting language like PHP. The easy way, if it is not an eCommerce type site, is to use JavaScript chained select boxes:
