Not sure if this should go under Widgets, or Customizing the CMS - so I put it in both.

I've created a widget, where I have two dropdown (select) controls. When editing the Widget in the CMS - I would like the second dropdown control to only appear when the first dropdown control is set to a specific value. When it is not set to this value, the second dropdown control would not be visible.

My first thought would be to hang javascript off of the first dropdown, but the problem is I don't know where to put this javascript so it will effect the dropdown in the CMS.

Can anyone here point me in the right direction?

Appreciate your time - thanks!
