    Changing Selects

    I have two identical selects, they each have the same number of options and the options are in the same order, the only difference is that they each have their own unique ID.

    Is it possible to create an OnChange script that if someone selects an option in select #1 it automatically carries that option over to the second select?

    Code:

    <html>
    <head>

    <body>
    <form name="f1" id="f1">
    
    <select name="s1" id="s1" onchange="this.form.s2.selectedIndex = this.selectedIndex;">
    <option value="red">red</option>
    <option value="orange">orange</option>
    <option value="green">green</option>
    <option value="blue">blue</option>
    <option value="purple">purple</option>
    </select>
    
    <select name="s2" id="s2">
    <option value="apple">apple</option>
    <option value="orange">orange</option>
    <option value="grapes">grapes</option>
    <option value="blueberry">blueberry</option>
    <option value="plum">plum</option>

    </html>

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.
