    Is it possible in form builder to limit the options in a drop down menu based on the previous menu or some other parameter or is a javascript customization necessary?

    For example if the first drop down menu is State and the next is City, then when the user selects the state only cities within that state should show up. See attached image for example.

    Thanks You.

    This would require scripting (JavaScript or whatever you set the XFT up to use).
    You might attach a database source to the form to make things a little easier to manage (rather than hard coding lists for example) but populating the second dropdown would still require script to decide which items to populate with based on the first dropdown's selection.
