By selecting the department in select menu the next select field sup should automatically get fetched with names.

One of the simplest methods is to use jQuery's Ajax method to do this.


Example code -> not tested

  url: "your_link.html",
  cache: false,
  success: function(data){
    // you can do an each sequence to append every value to the 
    // select box as options
    // I would respond with a json for the beginning
    // and iterate over every element so you can build your dropdown

    $.each(data, function( key, value ) {
        $("#your_select_box").append("<option value='" + key + "'>" + value + "</option>");

Forgot to add after the url parameter the data: data, parameter so you can send your values to extract exactly what you need.
