Hi guys,

I have  a worpress taxonomy which has a list of terms

For example

>Shop
>>Fashion
>>Sports
>>etc

>Service
>>Accountant
>>Solicitor
>>etc


I wish to make a drop down menu (<select>)

Which lists all the parent terms ie >Service,

I also wish to have a second drop down which is disabled by default, which is only active when the parent select is selected and has a valid value,

So for example

Primary Select :Service

Secondary select

>>Accountant
>>Solicitor
>>etc


Thanks for the help in advanced

This does not need to be Ajax just a simple Javascript 2-d array I think

Something like this
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Test</title>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var terms = {
  One : ['Item1','Item2','Item3'],
  Two: ['Item4','Item5','Item6']
};

$(function() {
  $('#parent').change(function() {
    var key = $(this).val();
    $('#child').empty();
    if (typeof terms[key] != undefined) {
      $(terms[key]).each(function(i,a) {
        $('#child').append($('<option/>').attr('value', a).html(a));
      });
    }
  });
});

</script>
<style type="text/css">
</style>
</head>
<body>
  <select id="parent">
    <option value="">Select One</option>
    <option value="One">One</option>
    <option value="Two">Two</option>
  </select>
  <select id="child">
  </select>
</body>
</html>
