Prefill Region field based on State/Providence

Hi,

Our clubs membership is divided into Regions of the country defined by specific States & Providences. A 6th Region "International" specifies members outside the US & Canada.

The problem I am having with my WA DA User update page is that when a member moves to another State which is located in another Region they may forget to update the Region field or may not know which Region to select.

How can I have the Region field filled automatically based on the users input to the State field?

I have a list of the States/Providences that are located in each Region and the remainder are in the International Region.

As I am not proficient with PHP please be as specific as you can with your suggestions.

Thank you,
Dennis

you would need to manually hand code this functionality using javascript.

A brief google search found this tutorial:
dropdown-list.php


there are others online as well.

Thanks Jason,

Would the WA Dynamic Dropdowns extension do this?

Also I'm not sure if I explained my situation clearly. The Region which I would like automatically selected from the State entered, does not have to be an editable/selectable field. It can be echoed to the cell in the form.

Thank you,
Dennis

dynamic dropdowns _could_ do this, but is has been discontinued and is no longer supported.
