  1. HI Swati,
    I have a requirement - 3 dropdown fields where input of 1 is dependent on others.
    eg - DD1 - companies- > (load only relevant products), DD2 - Products, (on bases of State selected, load relevant regions). DD3 - Regions. so the cases will be like nxnxn as if user slects dd2 firts and i have to update other 2 acc to the dd value.

    I am using Sitecore 9 update 1, and I am thinking to call Ajax method on change of any of the dd field. Do you have any source where I can find the relevant solution and how to hit ajax and load lists.
    Thanks
