Cascading field - Using a user picker field as the dependent field

Hi, this is my problem.

I want to be able to select one user of a set of users dependent of the value of other field, I mean:

First Field. Values:

A

B

C

For the value A I want to be able to select one of the users UA1, UA2, UA3

For the value B I want to be able to select one of the users UB1, UB2

And so on.

I am thinking to use a cascading field, but I need the dependent field be a user picker field type. Is there any way to achive this?

Thanks in advance

You'll need to write code for this. A cascading select really is a select, it's hard coded.

You could also try javascript hackery to connect two fields - take a select list, and then dynamically change the contents of a separate user-picker.

I avoid javascript like the plague, as it feels like a bodge and is a nightmare to get right and maintain in the long run, so I've no advice on that (other than "avoid it"). But there are loads of postings about various "dependent fields" here on answers that may get you started.
