HI EXPERTS,

I am trying ajax.

The code I have used is given below.I linked both the javascript files inside the head section.

When I select any category from first dropdown box, I call the javascript func and got the corresponding subcategories in the second dropdown. This is ok.

But I want to print the text boxes between second dropdown box and comment field corresponding to the subcategory selected in the second dropdown box using ajax.

But i can't get the text boxes.

What I have to do to print the text boxes between second dropdown box and comment field corresponding to the subcategory selected in the second dropdown box using ajax???.

Hope you will help me..

sorry , i can't get your points..

i think you need DHTML ie,innerHtml to be appeared when you select particular value from the drop down list is it?

please clarify about what you print as textbox..

Hi musthafa,

first thanks for ur reply.

the text fields that I have to print is mentioned in Dynamic_form.jsp. To print I used the variable responseText.
hope you will find that.

Again thanks,

yuvi

so you need to print responseText ...

rseponseText is a string as you declared..

but you need it as TextBox is it?
