auto-select option
#1
Question 
Hi.  I have 2 option lists, for example with colors (red, green, blue), and other one with items (dog, cat, ball).
Is there some way or alternative to do the following:
If i select item from list A {red}, it will automatically select option from B from other list as well, {dog}, etc.
Basically to make "bound options" of some sort.
?

Unfortunately you can't do this with an internal form, or with form builder.  You can definitely do this with an external form with a little bit of programming.  Check out https://css-tricks.com/dynamic-dropdowns/ or google jquery dynamic dropdown. Hope that helps :-)
