Upload it to any document library in your site (assuming its hidden from users, you will not want users to modify it and give you a shock)

Right click on the javascript we just uploaded and click on “Copy Shortcut”

Now in the custom list New Form/Edit Form, add a Content Editor Webpart and make it hidden

Edit the WebPart properties and click on “Source Editor”

Paste the following line –

     ChildDropDownListFieldControl child = (ChildDropDownListFieldControl)
               FindControlRecursive(this.Page, “ChildDropDownList”).Parent.Parent;
