This is driving me nuts, hopefully someone here can put me out of my

I'm generating a web page with drop down combo boxes, and I want one of
the values to be automatically selected.

I've googled and I understand that the ivalue attribute is the way to
do this. However take the following example:

<select name="boo" id="boo" ivalue="3">
<option value="1">One</option>
<option value="2">Two</option>
<option value="3">Three </option>
<option value="4">Four</option>
<option value="5">Five</option>
ivalue is set to 3, so therefore the third option is what should be
selected right? But when you view this code in any browser the initial
value is always "One" no matter what I set the ivalue attribute to.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

ivalue? i've never heard of that.

to select a value, you must use the "selected" property.

<option value="1" selected="selec ted">One</option>

I suppose, ivalue is in WML.

Hi all, Have written some code to limit the concurrent users of a database. Use the Autoexec macro to open a form. When the form opens it increments a value in a table. When the form closes (i.e. when the database closes, then the number in the table is decremented. I plan to use this on a front/back end setup, with a number of front end users on the network. What i'm concerned about is if for some reason the network fails, and the...

Hi - I've never worked with list boxes before. Here's what I'd like to do - have a list box (or some other control) that allows multiple selection and stores all the values in one field (can be separated by commas, line breaks - no preference as long as they are all in one field). Can a list box do this? If so, how do I get the selections stored in the field. I've set up the list box with the proper values and multiple selections enabled,...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
