Hey chechu,

I just copied the config.js and renamed it to config2.js...
Then i changed the values in config2.js the way i wanted it and included the
new js script in my form.

It works perfectly.
But i don't know if this is the best way to get another chained select?!?!?!?

Because you also working with the chained select sript, you maybe could give me an answer to my question?

Thanks in advance...

What do I need to change in the form ?

<form name="listmenu0">
<select name="firstlevel"></select>
<select name="secondlevel"></select><br>
<select name="thirdlevel"></select>
<select name="fourthlevel"></select><br>
<select name="fifthlevel"></select>
<input type="submit" value=" bekijk je keuze" onclick="goListGroup(document.listmenu0.firstlevel, document.listmenu0.secondlevel, document.listmenu0.thirdlevel, document.listmenu0.fourthlevel, document.listmenu0.fifthlevel)">
Can you place your code here of the two forms you have on the same page, please ?

Can't help you with your question regarding MySQL; never used it.

Hey chechu,

unlike you, i put the "onclick" element into the <body> tag.

Mine Body Tag looks like this:

<body bgcolor="#72144F"
onload="initListGroup('chainedmenu', document.Formular.WGR, document.Formular.UGR, document.Formular.TYP);initListGroup('chainedmenu_2', document.Formular.LF, document.Formular.HERKUNFT,document.Formular.LFARTGRP)" link="#72144F" vlink="#72144F" alink="#72144F">

In my form config.js belongs to 'chainedmenu' and config2.js belongs to 'chainedmenu_2'....

This is the name you need to define in the config.js.
If you don't rename the menue in config2.js, only one chained select menue will be activated.

Okay, so you use the body onload as you attached. But how does the form know what chainedmenu to follow ? Can you please place a link to your site where you use this, so I can have a look at your codes. Thanks.
