Auto-populating SELECT fields

P: 1
Hello All,

I am trying to autopopulate a SELECT INPUT field using an onClick function.
I can change value (i think), but am wondering how i change the text that is between the OPTION tags?

document.forms.formname.selectname.????? = 'what i want it to change to'...

Many Thanks,

You'll have to first access the correct option element:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. sel.options[i].text
where 'sel' is the select object and 'i' is the 0-based index to the option.
