If you mean you wish to show the options of a <select size="1"> as if
the user had clicked it?

There is no way to do that using client-side JavaScript in most, if not
all, browsers. I include the qualification because there may exist a Web
browser which allows you to force a <select> open using client-side
Javascript, but the "big three": IE, Gecko-based (Mozilla, Firefox) and
KHTML-based (Safari, Konqueror) browsers do not provide that
functionality.
