Subject Re: What's the easiest way to implement two dependent select lists ?
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2008 01:20:28 GMT

I agree there must be a better way to do it with a Tapestry component, but
I'd probably do it as you described (it would only be a trivial amount of
JS).  Again, I'm curious what the Tap experts would do.

The zone solution has been suggested for recent versions but doesn't appear
useful in this case.  You might want to reignite these threads:
