Dynamic Drop Down Support

I need to be able to add more than one dynamic dropdown selection on a page. I have a form that allows multiple inserts and have up to 4 of these dynamic dropdowns where the user can select a Country and then the State for each selection. I need some sample code of how to add multiple dynamic drop downs to the same page.

Dynamic Dropdowns cannot be used with multiple inserts, that is not supported.

Adding more than one dynamic drop down

I have a form in ASP that allows the user to select a Country/State drop-down and then use your extension to populate the second drop-down list with the list of Cities. I need to add this same drop-down to the same page 4 different times. What I need to know is how to add another dynamic drop down to the same page. It will pull the same information from the same recordset but I will pass the variables to another page that does the work. I planned on naming the variables uniquely so that I can manipulate them seperately. Is this possible? Right now, I'm getting errors even though they are named uniquely.

you will need to create 4 uniquely named sets of the country/state dropdowns on the page.

a separate recordset for each country list, and a separate recordset for each state list

and a separate Dynamic Array server behavior for each set.

basically you need to treat each set of country/state lists as a unique entity, and even though they may be using the same data table in the database, create a separate data source for each.
