Populating DropDownlist in repeater based on value of other DropDownList in a repeater

Hello,

I have a reserved seating app that needs to allow the user to define section, row, seat based on a database that contains a list of available seats. The repeater looks like this...

Ticket 1   [ddlSection]  [ddlRow]  [ddlSeat]
Ticket 2   [ddlSection]  [ddlRow]  [ddlSeat]
Ticket 3   [ddlSection]  [ddlRow]  [ddlSeat]

If the user selects section from Ticket1.ddlSection, the Ticket1.ddlRow should update based on available rows in the section. How do I handle this? Do I use the ItemCommand of the repeater? How do I get the "onselectedindexchanged" to fire within the repeater? Any help would be appreciated. Please include a little example code.

What you would be doing is add SelectedIndexChanged for the dropdownlists.
e.g. say these are two dropdownlists inside a repeater:
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlCategory" runat="server" AppendDataBoundItems="false" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource5"
                     DataTextField="CategoryName" DataValueField="CategoryId" AutoPostBack="true" OnSelectedIndexChanged="ddlCategories_SelectedIndexChanged" >
                 </asp:DropDownList>

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlProducts" runat="server" DataTextField="ProductName" DataValueField="ProductID" OnSelectedIndexChanged="ddlProducts_SelectedIndexChanged"></asp:DropDownList>

Here's the SelectedIndexchanged for two DDL:

//First DDL
protected void ddlCategories_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        RepeaterItem row = (RepeaterItem)((sender) as Control).NamingContainer;

        // get the value from the first dropdownlist
        DropDownList ddlCategory = ((sender) as DropDownList);
        int categoryId = Convert.ToInt32(ddlCategory.SelectedValue);
       
        // Get Second dropdown and data for second dropdown passing the first selected value.

        DropDownList ddlProducts = row.FindControl("ddlProducts") as DropDownList;
        //Get data for second ddl and bind it.
        ddlProducts.DataSource =  GetSecondDDL DataBind using FirstDDL Selectedvalue;
        ddlProducts.DataBind();
    }
   //Second DDL
    protected void ddlProducts_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
         //Here you do the same as first but for third ddl.
    }
