I am looking for client-side javascript plugin for jquery(preferred, or maybe other framework) that can implement the dependency between controls.

Here is general requirements:

  • the dependency shall be implemented in declarative form (settings, mapping, xml...)
  • the displaying of the next control shall be dependent on input of previous control(s)
  • one-to-one, one-to-many dependencies support
  • actions (show, hide, disable, set value...) on depended controls.
  • ajax calls

It is too complicated requirements and its can be simplified, but depended controls should be present.

I think, it can be useful, because everyone meet so stuffs in their UI.
