Dynamic Dropdown - Dynamic Array

Dynamic Dropdown - Dynamic Array

I'm following the tutorial for using Dynamic Dropdowns and the Primary dropdown is showing up empty. Attached is a sample .php page and .sql of the data.

Basically I want to Display the column Division in the first dropdown and then auto-populate the second dropdown with column AreaName where Division is equal to what was selected in the Division dropdown.

Seems pretty straightforward but I guess I'm missing something.

First, before the first select list, add the the following code to set the recordset to the first record:

<?php
$rows = mysql_num_rows($Recordset1);
if($rows > 0) {
mysql_data_seek($Recordset1, 0);
$row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1);
}
?>




then select the first list, and add the Populate List from Array behaivor.

open the behaviors window:
Window -> Behaviors

NOTE: Behaviors, not Server Behaviors

click the plus button and go to WebAssist -> Dynamic Dropdowns -> Populate List from Array
