Create a custom dropdown field based on another field

I am trying to setup two fields which are both dropdowns. I want the options available in the second one to be dependent on what option is selected in the first one.

For example, if the first field had choices of A, B or C I would want the second field to have selectable options of (1, 2 or 3) if A was selected, (4, 5, or 6) if B was selected and (10, 20 or 30) if C was selected.

In the second custom field, you should be able to declare the dependency.

At the bottom, after the section where you enter the options for selection (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6) you should be able to check a box that says 'dependent on', which will then allow you to select the 1 field you created (A, B & C).  You will then be offered a grid to select in the 2nd field which options are available for each of the options of the 1st, so 1, 2 or 3 if A was selected, exactly as you requested.
