If you are doing this with server-side processing (which I doubt is
what you really want), it'd be a matter of setting the boolean value
of the "rendered" attribute -- false means don't show or process it
and true means show and process it.  You would make the
selectOneListbox automatically submit the containing form when the
value was changed.  I've used this approach in the past when each
potential selection in the UISelectOne component would produce a
different set of results on the page.

However, you probably want to be doing this client-side so that
changing the form doesn't require a round trip to the server since
your situation is pretty straight-forward.   You'd do this with
javascript, probably by doing something along these lines:


I'm a javascript novice, though, so there are likely to be better ways
to write the javascript.
