Hi,
I cant check combo value below. Where is the mistake?
Thanks

<script Language="JavaScript">
function validateR(){
var selectedCombobox=(form2.selectCombo.value);
if (selectedCombobox=='All') {
alert("Please select something");
return false;
}
return true;
}
</script>
<select name="selectCombo">
        <option value="All">All</option>
        <option value="Other">Other</option>
  </select>

This basic example will force the user to select atleast 1 option from the selection list. Hope you had a great time! Enjoy coding...

Just to make it more precise!

<script type="text/javascript">
<!-- BEGIN HIDING

var nval = /^[1-2]{1}?$/;

function validateR(form)
<!-- BEGIN HIDING
 //To make it more precise we wil addUp some regExp -->
{
do
{ 
if ( form.selectCombo.options[0].selected ) { alert('\nKey-in ( 1 ) For Option 1\nKey-in ( 2 ) For Option 2' ); ask = prompt('Please select atleast 1 option!');  
form.selectCombo.selectedIndex = ask; }
 
//Additional tidBits! -->
if ( !nval.test( ask )) { alert('\nOnly numbers from 1 and 2 is allowed!'); }
if (!form.selectCombo.options[0].selected) { alert('\nDo the next thing!'); } 
} while( form.selectCombo.options[0].selected );
}
 
// DONE HIDING -->
</script>
