How can I trigger a picklist change event inside salesforce:

We have the following code :

        <apex:outputPanel id="dynamicRerender">
            <apex:repeat value="{!strings}" var="eachAPI">
                <div class="dynamicClass hidden">
                    <apex:inputField value="{!Case[eachAPI]}" id="sfField"/>

and then onComplete of the action function we are suppose to default the values of some of the picklist. But when we try to default the value, the dependent picklist does not show up.


I think because the controlling picklist is not able to trigger the change event. Is this manually possible?


Just found out its a normal change event to be triggered :

 $(".IdOfTheFieldControlllingField).trigger( "change" );
