Problem with dropdown & jquery - El Forum - 12-18-2009

Hi, I try to update three dropdown with ajax (jquery). The problem is that when I select a value from second combo, the third is updated but the second return void (not with the selected value)

Here the code:

CONTROLLER:
Code:
<?php
class Indicatori extends Controller {

    function Indicatori()
    {
        parent::Controller();
        $this->load->helper(array('form', 'url'));
    }
    
    function index()
    {
        echo '.';
    }
    
    function parametri()
    {
        $this->output->enable_profiler(TRUE);        
        $this->load->model('Parametri','',TRUE);
        $this->load->helper('url');
        $this->load->helper('form');
        $this->load->view('selparametri');        
    }
    function prova()
    {
        $this->load->database();
        
        if (isset($_POST['indicatore1']) && $_POST['indicatore1']!='')
        {
             $options ='';
            echo     $options.= '<option value="001" class="dynamic">1value1</option>';
            echo     $options.= '<option value="001" class="dynamic">1value2</option>';
            echo     $options.= '<option value="001" class="dynamic">1value3</option>';
    
        }
        if (isset($_POST['indicatore2']) && $_POST['indicatore2']!='')
        {
             $options ='';
            echo     $options.= '<option value="001" class="dynamic">2value1</option>';
            echo     $options.= '<option value="001" class="dynamic">2value2</option>';
            echo     $options.= '<option value="001" class="dynamic">2value3</option>';
        }
        
    }
}

                       if ( dynamic_options != (-1)) $(".dynamic").remove();
                    $("#indicatore" + (step + 1)).show();
                       $("#indicatore" + (step + 1)).append(response);
                    
                       }
                  
          });
    
    
    return false;
}

    $options = array("000" => "Selezionare");
    $js = 'style="display: none" id="indicatore2" onChange="test(2)"';
    echo form_dropdown('indicatore2', $options,'TRUE',$js);
        
    $options = array("000" => "Selezionare");
    $js = 'style="display: none" id="indicatore3" onChange="test(3)"';
    echo form_dropdown('indicatore3', $options,'TRUE',$js);
    
    echo form_close();
        
    ?&gt;
&lt;/body&gt;
&lt;/html&gt;

Thanks a lot!

Sorry I don't have time to go through all the code but try debugging with firebug and by alert()ing the step and the response.
