Hi Experts!
I am building a registration form, for which I need the user to select his Country/State/City information. I don't want to maintain the country/state/city database but rather pull it from a web service. It would be even better if I could find a widget that I could just insert into my code, and pulls the data from somewhere else, even if it has a cost.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I have downloaded the GeoBytes data into my SQL Server, but can't find a way to populate the menus as the user selects the data. I guess I need to use Ajax? GeoBytes does not provide a "widget" that gives all this functionality.

Found the AJAX menu implementation solution here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/MySQL/Q_26725767.html

But Geo Bytes helped with the database part, thanks!
