Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: dependent list box's

  1. dependent list box's (1 messages)

    I have seen several postings on the subject of having one list box's contents dependent on the selection of another and have not really heard of a good way to handle this. I have 2 lists, the first list has Company departments (aprox. 200 values). The second list has Company employees (approx. 300 per department). As you can see I only want to display the employees for the selected department. I have seen java script that requires all of the employees to be sent and then filters from there, but this is not real efficient with the large number of employees I have. Any ideas on how to do this without resubmitting the entire form each time? This list will be used quite a bit, but a particular user will hit only a single department most of the time.

    I don't think you have any other options besides using JavaScript or resubmitting.
