java dropdown transfer thingy question

P: n/a
I have explained at the linked below my problem. Basically it is a Java code
.. It is a dropdown box. when you select an item it goes to another text area
.. You can add items to that text area. Problem is when I summit it only
submits the first item in the textbox ignoring other items. How can I get it
to post all the items in the textbox (it is not really a text box, you need
to have a look.

Actual page suing this code is here. http://golfoz.com.au/designyourown.php
just near the Options (F. Golf Tour Destinations)
I have asked this in forums without help. below is more detail of my
question.

First, you aren't using Java. You're using Javascript and they have little
to do with each other.

Second, You should post a working example here (or anywhere you expect to
get help).

Third, I did follow your link. While I didn't dig through all the code, I
did notice that the SELECT element you are using does not specify that it
allows multiple selections. I'd suggest looking at that. Just a guess on my
part from a cursory examination. While looking at that, I'd look into having
the options you add to the target box be marked as selected.

Thanks Virgil,

Obviously you can detect a novus user.

!. Thanks for clarifying

2.Working example was long so I provide a link instead. But I'll take your
advise next time.

3. Sorry I meant to say repeated options, which it does. How do I go about
options I add to the target box be marked as selected ?

Bear in mind, I haven't tried this. I'm just taking a shot in the dark.

Sorry Virgil, You lost me. It is not clear to me as I do not understand
Java.

You even have problems with reading (eg: Java != ECMAScript).

That's right Tim. It is a language I do not understand and I am trying to
help my Japanese friend's web site form. So Java to me it's bit like
Japanese to you probably.
Where do I use this Java != ECMAScript.
