    Question How can I pass From 3 Dropboxes to Texarea

    Can anybody help me!!!

    I want to be able to select values from this three option menus,
    and pass them on to the textarea,
    But I dont want them to pass the value until everyone of them have been selected,
    and maybe when they pass the values to the Textarea,
    the sender can send this tags <" ">

    So that would be like
    <" valuefrombox1 valuefrombox2 valuefrombox3 ">




    <form name="selectform">

    <select name="dropdownbox1" size=1>
    <option value="">Color</option>
    <option value="red"> red</option>
    <option value="green">green</option>
    <option value="blue">blue</option>
    <option value="pink">pink</option>
    <option value="yellow">yellow</option>
    <option value="black">black</option>
    </select>

    <select name="dropdownbox2" size=1>
    <option value="">Face</option>
    <option value="courier"> courier</option>
    <option value="verdana">verdana</option>
    <option value="comic">comic</option>
    <option value="Item 4">Item 4</option>
    <option value="Item 5">Item 5</option>
    <option value="Item 6">Item 6</option>
    </select>

    <select name="dropdownbox3" size=1>
    <option value="">Size</option>
    <option value="1"> 1</option>
    <option value="2">2</option>
    <option value="3">3</option>
    <option value="4">4</option>
    <option value="5">5</option>
    <option value="6">6</option>
    </select>
    <input type=button value="Add" onClick="passText(this.form.dropdownbox
    .options[this.form.dropdownbox.selectedIndex].value);">
    </form>

    <form name="displayform" >
    <font face="Arial, Helvetica, Sans Serif" size="3"><b>Items added to list:</b></font><br>
    <textarea cols="45" name="itemsbox" ></textarea>
    </form>

    Hi,

    Code:
    <form name="selectform"> 
    
    <select name="dropdownbox1" size=1> 
    <option value="">Color</option> 
    <option value="red"> red</option> 
    <option value="green">green</option> 
    <option value="blue">blue</option> 
    <option value="pink">pink</option> 
    <option value="yellow">yellow</option> 
    <option value="black">black</option> 
    </select> 
    
    <select name="dropdownbox2" size=1> 
    <option value="">Face</option> 
    <option value="courier"> courier</option> 
    <option value="verdana">verdana</option> 
    <option value="comic">comic</option> 
    <option value="Item 4">Item 4</option> 
    <option value="Item 5">Item 5</option> 
    <option value="Item 6">Item 6</option> 
    </select> 
    
    <select name="dropdownbox3" size=1> 
    <option value="">Size</option> 
    <option value="1"> 1</option> 
    <option value="2">2</option> 
    <option value="3">3</option> 
    <option value="4">4</option> 
    <option value="5">5</option> 
    <option value="6">6</option> 
    </select> 
    <input type=button value="Add" onClick="passText(this.form.dropdownbox1,this.form.dropdownbox2,this.form.dropdownbox3);"> 
    </form>
    then in passText() :-

    Code:
    function passText(dp1,dp2,dp3)
    {
     var str = "<" + dp1.options[dp1.selectedIndex].value + " " +  dp2.options[dp2.selectedIndex].value + " "  + dp3.options [dp3.selectedIndex].value + ">";
    
    document.displayform.itemsbox.value = str;
    }
    i think should be what you are after
