1.  
You will have to grab the data from the MySQL database and then encode it as JSON data.
This will require querying the database and then putting it into a form that can be JSON encoded.  I recommend you create a separate topic for that.

2.
Not sure what you mean by "unselect".  One of the options has to be selected.
Do you mean when you select an option with no value or value=0?:
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.js"></script>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.chainedSelects.js"></script>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
$(function()
{
 
      $('#tipglass1').chainSelect('#glass1','query/queryglass1.php',
      
      {
            before:function (target) //before request hide the target combobox and display the loading message
            {
                  $("#loading").css("display","block");
                  $(target).css("display","none");
                  $("#glass1_li").css("display","none");
            },
            after:function (target) //after request show the target combobox and hide the loading message
            {
                  $("#loading").css("display","none");
                  $(target).css("display","inline");
                  $("#glass1_li").css("display","inline");
                  if(!$this.val() || this.val() == 0) $(target).hide();
            }
            
      });
      
});
</script>

ok for the second question:

if I add
if(!$this.val() || this.val() == 0) $(target).hide();

i have this problem:

$this.val = not defined

I must:
if result of first select box = 0 , hide $("#glass1_li")
else
$("#glass1_li").css("display","inline");
0

no its not work.
I post code so you understand:




I would that if into selectbox id="tipglass1" the value selected is != 0  the id="glass1_li" is display:inline,
while if id="tipglass1" the value selected is == 0 the id="glass1_li" is visible display:none.


html file
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
$(function()
{
 
	$('#tipglass1').chainSelect('#glass1','query/queryglass1.php',
	
	{
		before:function (target) //before request hide the target combobox and display the loading message
		{ 
			$("#loading").css("display","block");
			$(target).css("display","none");
			$("#glass1_li").css("display","none");
		},
		after:function (target) //after request show the target combobox and hide the loading message
		{ 
			$("#loading").css("display","none");
			$(target).css("display","inline");
			$("#glass1_li").css("display","inline");
			}
	});
	
});
</script>
</head>

Should do as you describe.
I won't be around for a while, but for anyone else who can help him.

The plugin is here.
http://codeassembly.com/Simple-chained-combobox-plugin-for-jQuery/

It's a hierarchical select, that renders JSON data.
if($('#tipglass1').val() != 0) $('#glass1_li').css('display','inline');
 
if($('#tipglass1').val() == 0) $('#glass1_li').css('display','none');
