Automatically select dropdown menu item from a conditional value list based on a previously selected dropdown menu item?

I have 2 dropdown menus in a layout, where the 2 value lists are related and the 2nd dropdown menu presents a conditional value list based on the value selected in the 1st menu.


I would like that in some cases, the value in the 2nd dropdown menu is automatically filled-in/selected based on the value selected in the first dropdown menu - can I use a script to automate this? Would the procedure be the same for a pop-up menu?

I would like, for example, that when the user selects "Hands" in dropdown menu 1, that "HCW hands" is automatically entered in dropdown 2, but that the user could still optionally select "Patient hands" by manually dropping down the menu.


Thank you for your help!
