I’m hoping there’s a simple answer to my conundrum:
When new users sign up to my app, I need there to be two dropdowns. The first will have a list of countries, and then, based on the user’s selection in the first dropdown, more specific location options will appear in the second dropdown. I would then capture and save this to the user’s profile.
An example would be:
Dropdown 1: User selects United States of America
The second drop down would then populate with a list of cities and states
Dropdown 2: User selects Los Angeles, CA
Another enigma is where would I pull these choice from in the first place? It’s obviously not reasonable to manually input all these options.
I could simply have my users manually input the information, but because this is meant to be a directory I don’t want to risk them misspelling things or using alternate spellings and fragmenting the data.
If anyone else has dealt with anything similar, your help would be greatly appreciated!
