HTML Select, OnChange on <option>?

Hi guys,

As far as I understand it, there is no possible way to add an
OnSelect/Onchange to an actual <option> within a select tag (to perhaps jump
to a page or run a DOM command), is this still correct with modern client
browser advances (obviously taking into account the incompatibiliti es of
this method with older browsers).

Cheers, Ash

Use the select element's onchange handler and it's selectedIndex
property instead.

Ahhhh ok cool, shame its not a little simpler though and accessible directly
from the <option> tag.

Hi there, Should I be concerned with a malicious user spoofing a postback by changing the values for a control like the dropdownlist found in the rendered <option> tags. I would hope asp.net would bomb on them if the value they posted was never a listitem in the control. Here's another question/situation though, what if the listitems in the codebehind were just "visible=false", could a user potentially trick a dropdownbox into acting like...

This is a nasty one and I can't see my way out of it. I have a bunch of select statements in a form, and each select statement has an onchange="do_something(this)" in it, and this works nicely..except when there is only ONE OPTION in a given select. It seems you cannot 'onchange' a single option! Well, that is reasonable. The trouble is I have no way of selecting it since the form itself is a
