Once those are selected I want the next field to populate with the IPs associated with the selected devices...... things like this. I know how to do it with regular html forms and javascript, but I've used a CF array instead of a javascript array this time and now I'm lost. ...

    Default Flash Forms: Auto-pop second form field based on choicefrom first

    I'm trying to create a flash form (tabbed) that allows the user to pick
    multiple items from a listbox and another listbox/textarea/something is then
    populated with items from that selection. A good example would be: I want the
    user to select a couple of devices from a dropdown box. Once those are selected
    I want the next field to populate with the IPs associated with the selected
    devices...... things like this. I know how to do it with regular html forms and

    and now I'm lost. :) Thanks for the help.

    I am new to this as well, have you tried using the 'bind' selector?
    I use it to calculate a value based on data entered in other input boxes.
    You can use any Actionscipt here too.

    Just a thought.
