You can create an ActiveX Control, but that would only work in IE unless you have the EnCompass plugin for NS...

Or, you could do something like this...

When the user select "OTHER" from a drop down, you prompt or uncover another box that will allow them to enter a new item... Then add it to the drop-down box and select it....

Thanks MasseyM,
that was the way I am already trying.
Point is, as I'm just starting out with VB-script I'm not as yet very competent in
writing 'complex' code. If you could supply me with the code to enable me to do this
I'ld be very greatful. I'ld like to point out that the site will be server-driven so VBS will
run on the server and the client will get good old plain HTML because ASP will
translate he code to HTML. If you're interested I'll keep you posted how the site is
coming along.
Greetings

I tried the following, doesn't do the trick:

<HTML>
<HEAD><TITLE>Using a command button</TITLE></HEAD>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT">
<!--
  Dim taal
  Sub Button2_onClick
    taal = Form2.Select1.value
    Document.Write taal
  End Sub

  Sub Button1_onClick
    If (Form1.Select1.value = "Andere taal") Then
    Document.Write "<FORM NAME='Form2'>Geef de niet op de lijst aangegeven taal op a.u.b.: <BR> "
    Document.Write "<BR><INPUT NAME='Select1' "
    Document.Write "VALUE='???' "
    Document.Write "TYPE=TEXT SIZE=50 MAXLENGTH=50> "
    Document.Write "</FORM> "
    Document.Write "<P><INPUT TYPE=BUTTON NAME='Button2' VALUE='Ga door'> "
    else
    taal = Form1.Select1.value
    End If
    Document.Write taal
  End Sub
 
-->
</SCRIPT>

<BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF">

<FORM NAME="Form1">Selecteer a.u.b. een taal die u beheerst:
  <BR>
  <SELECT NAME="Select1" SIZE=10>
    <OPTION VALUE="Nedelands" SELECTED>Nederlands
    <OPTION VALUE="Engels">Engels
    <OPTION VALUE="Frans">Frans
    <OPTION VALUE="Duits">Duits
    <OPTION VALUE="Andere taal">Andere taal
  </SELECT>
  <P><INPUT TYPE=BUTTON NAME="Button1" VALUE="Ga door">
</FORM>  
</BODY>
</HTML>

If you to 'andere taal' and you want to submit in the generated HTML-page
nothing seems to happen after you click Button2
