Hi,
I am having a form with a drop down and want to display the fields below it based on the drop down value selected.

for example: my form has a drop down <select value> <values: A, B ,C, D)

when I select A then I should get displayed a set of fields ( like input fields, drop down fields etc) just below the main drop down and when I choose B then it should display a set of fields specific to B and like that..

Could any one please let me know what technology / script to use this to achieve this. I have also attached the sample html page and struggling with that. appreciate if you can give some idea so that i can complete this.

Thanks,
Mahesh>

Hold your content in div.
For eg; DivA for contents to be shown on selection A.
And show/hide the Divs on selection of the value.
You need a JavaScript function to do this.
