Hi Ranchers,

Properties file
AA_TYPE_1 value1
AA_TYPE_2 value2
BB_TYPE_1 value3


I have two comoboxes "combo1" and "combo2"
I am filling combo1 from database
I want fill combo2 using "onchange" event of combo1

My question is I want to fill combo2 values using properties file.
From above when I select AA from combo1 then combo2 should be filled up with "value1" and "value2" of keys AA_TYPE_1 and AA_TYPE_2

Thanks in advance.

A few points:
  • It's not a "combo box" -- HTML has no Combo Box control. Please read this for more information.
  • Reacting to the onchange event must be controlled via JavaScript, and use Ajax to request the contents of the second control.
  • On the server, the properties classes in the java.util package can be used to access the properties files.
  • That should be enough to get you started.
    You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
