How to program an input selection list

P: n/a
Hi,

When I input my email address on this website, it provides a drop down
box with two of my email addresses. The right bottom corner has a few
45 degree lines to indicate the user can change its size. Do you know
how to create it? I could not find the code in the source. Thanks a
lot.

Damn. Not working.

I guess I'll need you to tell me the URL.

What website? Google?

You are actually posting to a Usenet NewsGroup,
and I am reading this in a news reader called
40tude Dialog. The news groups can be accessed
on the web via a browser (at sites like Google),
or in a mail program, such as Outlook Express or
40tude Dialog.

I suspect what you're seeing is IE's auto-complete feature. It remembers
previous form entries and lets you select them from a drop-down box.

If so, then it's a feature of the browser, and nothing javascript-related.

Gecko-based browsers have something similar.

However, in both cases, the results can not be control by script.
