    Hello, I was wondering if anyone has any good examples of a form, that I assume would use AJAX or some type of Javascript framework, that can trigger an event based on another event. That probably doesn’t make much sense, but what I’m looking to do is if a user selects ‘other’ from a dropdown list, then I would like a text box to appear, giving the user the ability to enter information regarding why they selected ‘other’. I could certainly do this once the form is submitted, but I would like it to appear automatically without the user having to click the submit button.

    Any ideas???

    Thanks for your time!


    Thanks Box, I thought the same thing, but I haven’t been able to find a solid example of what I am looking for. I am able to find all sorts of validation and I use it quite a bit, but I haven’t had much luck in looking for the conditional event trigger.



    check the basic jquery video cast chris did. You can just use it to show / hide the relevant fields as box said.
