itfirstaid created the topic: Populate Select list action

I am Getting issue of "Undefined function". I want to populate another select list on change of first select list.
The problem is in fire an event. In console 2 errors are:
1. Unexpected identifier: in ff_getElementByName

2. ff_make_action is not defined at HTMLSelectElement.onchange

Can you help me out to resolve this issue?

Here is my code:
function ff_make_action(element,action){
switch (action) {
case 'change':
// pop make fld
var selname = ff_getElementByName(element.name);
if (ff_getElementByName(element.name).value){
ff_getElementByName('vMake').value = selname[selname.selectedIndex].text;}
//alert("<?php return JURI::root(true ); ?>/media/breezingforms/formsapps/truecut/make.php");
//alert("<?php return JURI::root(true ); ?>/media/breezingforms/formsapps/truecut/make.php"+"?ddd="+ff_getElementByName('make').value);
type: "POST",
url: "<?php return JURI::root(true ); ?>/media/breezingforms/formsapps/truecut/make.php"+"?ddd="+ff_getElementByName('make').value,
//data: {"rec_id":element.value}, //the value to send to the php file
dataType: 'json',
success: function(msg){
return msg;


edits= ff_getElementByName('model');
edits.options[0] = new Option('Select Model','',true,true);
for (var i=0; i <myDataArray2.length; i++){

//edits.options[i+1] = new Option(myDataArray2.name, myDataArray2.id, myDataArray2.fourwd);
edits.options[i+1] = new Option(myDataArray2.name, myDataArray2.id);

} // switch
Thanks in advance.
Looking forward to hear from you soon.
