how can I show the first value

how can I show the first value

Hi,
how can I show the first dynamic value of the child dropdown list in the beginning?
I have a typical parent & child related dd menu which works fine as expected. The only flaw is when I start the page where the 2 dropdowns are situated, the second (child) always comes empty.
If I chose the second or any following entry from the first (parent) dd the corresponding child list appears as usual.

Is there a way to show the first corresponding child entry at startup?

Thanks for any hint

Just copy the code you currently have applied onChange of the parent list and paste it to the onLoad event of the page so that the child list is populated when the page loads as if you made a change to the parent list.

ya but you can't put the onLoad even in the body tag if its locked by editable reagions! So which event should you attach it too on your page?

no event... just add it to a script tag at the lowest point of the last editable region.
