I created some dialog box, and i have doubt is it posible to show/hide some part of dialog box based on dropdown list selection. For example, i want to hide whole panel1 if on dropdown listi is selected "Solution2"

var startRulerUnits = app.preferences.rulerUnits;  
app.preferences.rulerUnits = Units.CM;
var box = new Window('dialog', "EXAMPLE");
var b = ["Solution1", "Solution 2", "Solution 3"];  
for (var i = 0; i < b.length; i += 1) {  
b["_"+b[i]] = i;  
}
box.group7 = box.add('group', undefined );  
box.group7.orientation='row'; 
box.group7.alignment = 'right'; 
box.group7.text1 = box.group7.add('statictext', undefined, "List od solutions");
box.group7 = box.group7.add("dropdownlist", [25,40,160,60], b); 
box.panel1 = box.add('panel', undefined, "Test");
box.panel1.group41 = box.panel1.add('group', undefined ); 
box.panel1.group41.text1 = box.panel1.group41.add('statictext', undefined, "Buton1:");
var btn1 = box.panel1.group41.add('edittext', [25,40,10,60],"",{multiline:false, scrollable:false});
box.panel1.group41.text2 = box.panel1.group41.add('statictext', undefined, "");
box.panel1.group42 = box.panel1.add('group', undefined ); 
box.panel1.group42.orientation='row';  
box.panel1.group42.alignment = 'right';
box.panel1.group42.text1 = box.panel1.group42.add('statictext', undefined, "Button 2:");
var btn2 = box.panel1.group42.add('edittext', [25,40,10,60],"",{multiline:false, scrollable:false});
box.panel1.group42.text2 = box.panel1.group42.add('statictext', undefined, "");
box.panel1.group43 = box.panel1.add('group', undefined ); 
box.panel1.group43.orientation='row';  
box.panel1.group43.alignment = 'right';
box.panel1.group43.text1 = box.panel1.group43.add('statictext', undefined, "Button 3:");
var btn3 = box.panel1.group43.add('edittext', [25,40,10,60],"",{multiline:false, scrollable:false});
box.panel1.group43.text2 = box.panel1.group43.add('statictext', undefined, "");
box.panel1.group44 = box.panel1.add('group', undefined ); 
box.panel1.group44.orientation='row';  
box.panel1.group44.alignment = 'right';
box.panel1.group44.text1 = box.panel1.group44.add('statictext', undefined, "Button 4:");
var btn4 = box.panel1.group44.add('edittext', [25,40,10,60],"",{multiline:false, scrollable:false});
box.panel1.group44.text2 = box.panel1.group44.add('statictext', undefined, "");
box.panel1.group45 = box.panel1.add('group', undefined ); 
box.panel1.group45.orientation='row';  
box.panel1.group45.alignment = 'right';
var chck1 = box.panel1.group45.add("checkbox", undefined, "Not used");
var btnGroup = box.add ("group");
btnGroup.orientation = "row";
var btnOk = btnGroup.add("button", undefined, "OK");  
var btnCancel = btnGroup.add("button", undefined, "Cancel"); 
box.center();
btnOk.onClick = function() {  
box.close(1);
};  
btnCancel.onClick = function() {  
box.close(0);
}; 
box.show()
