Trap the event onselect or onFocus on the dependent selection box and call blur() for the second selection box.

it wud mean that you will never be able to select the second selection list at all.

thanx for the reply...
i used onBlur() on the onFocus() event of the second(dependent) select box... but it did'nt worked... so..i tried calling onFocus() of the first select box on the onFocus of the second select box...
this thing worked somewhat.... as now if i try to drop down the second select....then after 3-4 tries only..i m able to drop down and select another value....

is there any way that i can set the drop down to false?
or is there any other way out to the problem??
