But, I don't know how to access the selections a user might make. Does anyone know how to do this?
A couple of options here
In the opening tag

Thanks for helping.
In my particular version the combo box opens in a new <div> layer because it has many options and each option is pretty long (so it wouldn't look good if just left on the main page.)
I have a SAVE button which selects the added options (the ones the user has put into the right hand <select>) and what I want it to do is have a script write the text of the selections into a <textarea> on the main page.
My problem is, right now my SAVE button appends the index of the selections to the url, for instance, like this
(list2 being the right hand <select> box in the combo.)
AS you can see, it works in that it gives me the index of the selections, but what I have no clue about is how do I get at those values in the url.
Is there a way to access those values in the URL? (so that the associated text can be written into a textarea)
thanks for help.
Take a look here for information about transfering data to another page, this might help you.
