I have two dropboxes, Select1, Select2 in Form2. Select1 has 5 options. Select2 is disabled. Only if i select "money order or check" options, in first dropbox, second dropbox should be active and give its two options and i cannot skip without selecting anything from the second dropdown.

Code is as follows.

<html>
      <head>
            
      </head>
      <body>
            <TABLE border="0">
                  <TR>
                        <form id="Form2" name="Form2" action="" method="post">
                              <TD width="127">Payment Method:</TD>
                              <TD><SELECT id="Select1" name="Select1">
                                          <OPTION value="0" selected></OPTION>
                                          <OPTION value="1">Computer</OPTION>
                                          <OPTION value="2">Pay by Phone</OPTION>
                                          <OPTION value="3">Wire Transfer</OPTION>
                                          <OPTION value="4">Money Order</OPTION>
                                          <OPTION value="5">Check</OPTION>
                                    </SELECT></TD>                        
                  </TR>
                  <TR>                        
                              <TD width="127">Mailing Method:</TD>
                              <TD><SELECT id="Select2" name="Select2">
                                          <OPTION value="7" selected></OPTION>
                                          <OPTION value="8">Overnight</OPTION>
                                          <OPTION value="9">Regular</OPTION>
                                    </SELECT></TD>
                  </TR>
                  </form>
            </TABLE>

To make sure the user selects something put this in your form tag:

<form id="Form2" name="Form2" action="" method="post" onsubmit="if(this.form.select2.disabled=false&&this.form.select2.selectedIndex==0){alert('Please choose something from select 2.');return false;}">
