View Full Version : select menu and clicking browser back button

08-25-2011, 05:21 PM
I am trying to write script that allows a user to select a new page using a select menu. But if a user changes mind and clicks Back button. i want a use to see again "Select a New Page" as a first option in the select menu. instead i see the page that was chosen before. in firefox, even when i click Refresh button, the select menu does not go back to its initial format.
I tried to use the principle that each time window is loaded, the selected Index would be 0. it is not working. Could anyone give me a hint on how to fix this problem?

my script is below.

<title>Jump Menu 2</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function new_page() {
var selectmenu=document.getElementById("states_form").states_select;
selectmenu.onchange=function new_state() {
var i=selectmenu.selectedIndex;
var state=selectmenu.options[i].value;

var new_page="http://www.50states.com/"+state+".htm";
window.onload=function select_reload() {
<form id="states_form">
<select name="states_select">
<option value="0"> -- Select a New State--</option>
<option value="nebraska"> Nebraska</option>
<option value="texas"> Texas</option>
<option value="florida">Florida </option>
<option value="oregon"> Oregon</option>
<option value="wisconsi"> Wisconsin</option>
