Don't really know what to use in this situation...
I am a java software engineer but new to web development. I have a project that involves the use of <select> dropdowns that needs to be updated.
The user has to be able to select a year in a first dropdown and it should automatically filter all the other dropdowns using this year parameter. Right now, it's a php/mySQL and I have a feeling that reloading the page with a new param everytime will be very costly.
What I would implement is something like loading the whole content when the user opens the page and them having a client based filtering of the <select> dropdowns.
Am I being clear? Is AJAX what I am looking for?
Thanks a lot.
Welcome to DevX
If the requirement is to have the page filtered by a selected year, then that sounds like something you could do with standard ASP.
