Hello everyone,

I'm trying to create a view (just a view, no model associated) in which a specific option appears based on another option you click. Let's see if I can explain it:


Imagine a page (it should be a form, I guess) with 3 parts (A, B, C). Every part is a group of options and you can only choose 1 option per group. In this scenario, how could I make part C depend on what I choose in part A? so I could choose between options C1 and C2 if I choose A1, but A2 will led me to C3 or C4.


I hope it's clear enough and someone knows the answer!! :D


Thank You,

This sound like a frontend type of thing. You could hide all of B and C and then after selecting A1 or A2 show the appropriate part of B and C with Javascript.

Yep - sounds like a job for javascript. If you're new to it, take a look at jQuery (http://jquery.com/) - there's loads of tutorials around which should help you do what you're trying to achieve.
