I have two dropdown list

The first one is this:
 <select name="AppLifeCycle" size="1" id="AppLifeCycle" onChange="return ChangeStatus();">
            <option value="Core" selected>Core</option>
            <option value="Declining" >Declining</option>
            <option value="Emerging" >Emerging</option>
            <option value="Niche" >Niche</option>
            <option value="Phase-Out" >Phase-Out</option>
            <option value="Planned" >Planned</option>
            <option value="Retired" >Retired</option>

Open in new window

and the Second one is this:

 <select name="retired" size="1" id="retired">
                <option value="0" selected>No</option>
                <option value="1" >Yes</option>

Open in new window

What I want is when the user select the value "Retired" from AppLifeCycle list box,
it should automatically select the option "Yes" from the list box retired.

this is what I have so far that does not work.

function ChangeStatus() {
		 var RetiredFld = $("#AppLifeCycle").val();  
		  if ( RetiredFld == "Retired"){
			$("#retired option").prop("selected",1)
			$("#retired option").prop("selected",0)
		return true;

Simply replace this one onChange="return ChangeStatus();" with code below

onChange="javascript:if(this.selectedIndex == 6){ document.getElementById('retired').selectedIndex = 1; }else{ document.getElementById('retired').selectedIndex = 0; }"
