Question ID: 783136
I need Dojo/JavaScript help. I would like to use the Dojo AJAX
framework to populate two ComboBoxes.  I get the first box populated,
but I need to know how to (dynamically) populate the second based on
the choice made on the first.

Here is some code:

<form id="vcdb">

	<!-- Present Year options | 2006, 2005, 2005, Et Cetera -->
	<select dojoType="ComboBox" value="this should never be seen - it is replaced!"
		dataUrl="http://localhost/test/ajax/vcdb.asp" style="width: 300px;"
name="foobar1" maxListLength="15">
	<!-- Present Make options available | Ford, Chevy, Et cetera --> 
	<select dojoType="ComboBox" value="this should never be seen - it is replaced!"
		dataUrl="http://localhost/test/ajax/vcdb.asp?year={Current value of
foobar1}" style="width: 300px;" name="foobar2" maxListLength="15">

The first ComboBox works fine; However, I don't know how to
call/populate the second.  How do I write {Current value of foobar1}
in JavaScript that Dojo understands?

There is no answer at this time.

Why not try it with several comboboxes, but only displaying the one
which is determined by the value of the first one?
