DropDownList mania

I have one to five DropDownLists that each depend on the previous DropDownLists' selected value. The first DropDownLists depends on a RadioButtonList selection. How do I get this to work while getting the data from a database.

One of the challenges is that when each new selection is made, an image must also be displayed.

Using C# ASP.NET / SQL Server.

well, Try using the cascadingdropdownlist from ajaxtoolkit of asp.net

http://www.asp.net/ajaxLibrary/AjaxControlToolkitSampleSite/CascadingDropDown/CascadingDropDown.aspx

regarding the radiobutton for the first dropdown, write a javascript function to track the changes in radioscript and trigger the cascade dropdownlists

have a look here for the radiobutton thing via javascript:

I appreciate the great suggestions materpass, but I am limited to the regular ASP.NET DropDownLists, perhaps you have some suggestions along those lines?
