Dynamic Dropdowns - stop automatic selection on second list?

Dynamic Dropdowns - stop automatic selection on second list?

Hello there

I have a Dynamic Dropdowns parent and child list working fine (as usual) but in this case I need to force the user to make a selection from the child list (I need to fire an OnChange event).
Is there a quick and easy way to prevent the child list auto-selecting a value (the top list item in this case)

Thanks

Steve

on the child list add a blank option:
<option value="">Make A Selection</option>

In the Populate list from array behavior, set the Leave Top setting to 1, that tells it to leave the first blank option in lace when populating the list

Quick!

Man that was quick - across the wide blue Atlantic and back in less than a couple of minutes!
There can't be many forums in the World with that speed of response - thanks again as always.

Jason - I have just implemented this and although that works as you describe, it isn't exactly what I was looking for.
I am looking for the child list to be populated with the recordset but no value to be selected, with no blank value at the top.
Is this possible?

Thanks again
