Hi experts, thank you for your time.

First off, let me give you a little background info as to what my end goal is as I am open to suggestions for other methods of achieving this.

I need to create page where the user can select the manufacturer of their mobile/cell phone and then select their model of phone and then be presented with instructions for that specific phones data deletion methods. I have huge list of all the instructions, I am just trying to find the best way of including this into my site.

I have found this: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/chainedmenu/index.htm which provides me with the chained select menus and I can manage this, I am just not sure how to make this pull up the content once the user makes the final selection and hits "go".

Can any of you great experts help me out here... I am very new to javascript/jQuery so please be patient with me.  :-)

I'm sorry, you lost me completely... I'm sorry, I am a very weak coder.

I thought there might be a way of mixing the multi select menus as linked to above with the following content loader: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/comboviewer.htm

I'm sorry for being a pain, just not following your reply and looking for a simple approach... For my sake.  :-)

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

as per ur sample links... the go button drop down combo is showing some alert message... seems like some java script is used to generate the value based on the combo selection...
if you want to set that value in same page without form submit then you can create a div in the page itself (like below the go button) and can set that alert message value in that div...

<div id="divResult">
</div>


you have to find out the java script that is being called in go button click... in that java script you have to write something like....

document.getElementById("divResult").innerHTML = result;   ///here result will be replaced by the alert message variable....
