A dependent dropdown works like the following:

  1. Server side … PHP generates the initial page. It has 2 dropdowns. One is filled with options, and the other may be empty at this moment. The page also has a javascript to handle the following action in the client side. And the page is sent to the user’s browser.

  2. Client side … The user selects an item in the 1st dropdown. This action causes the javascript to send back the selected item to the server via ajax call.

  3. Server side … PHP gets the selected item and generates the content of the 2nd dropdown according to the selection. The content is send to the user’s browser via ajax response.

  4. Client side … The javascript receives the response and updates the content of the 2nd dropdown.

You can not pass the selected value of the 1st dropdown to the 2nd one directly in one shot as you are trying to do in your view script.
