populating a dropdown list based on the selection in another dropdown.

In my JIRA gadget i have two dropdowns. I need to populate dropdownB based on the selection in dropdownA. Currently i have used dropdownA.onchange event and that event is not triggered.

where should I place the code so that the even is captured? config/view/script?

Currently I have placed this code in the script section, which is it working when I realod the page.

chipNames.onchange = function(){ setTimeout(function(){}, 1); var selectedChip = chipNames.options[chipNames.selectedIndex].text; if (selectedChip !== "" && selectedChip !== '-1') { boards.options.length = 0; AJS.$.ajax({ url: "/rest/testresults-gadget/1.0/test-results-data/getOptions", data:{chips:selectedChip}, dataType:"json", success:function(data){ var lists = data.boardNamesForTests; var boardOptions = document.createElement('options'); boardOptions.text = " "; boardOptions.value = " "; boards.add(new Option(boardOptions.value,0)); for(var i = 0; i < lists.length; i++){ boardOptions.text = lists[i].label; boardOptions.value = lists[i].value; boards.add(new Option(boardOptions.value,0)); } } }); } }
