hi,
I've got this problem with setting default values in a form.
i get values from asp1 in asp2.now these values are stored in variables and they should be the default values of a textbox,listbox(<select> html),radio buttons,check boxes.
I'm able to do for textboxes but what happens in the others.
I don't want a solution in javascript but in vbscript.Please let me know as early as possible.thanx.

For List boxes:
Suppose the the list box is as follows,
<SELECT NAME="purchase" SIZE="5">
<OPTION>Soap
<OPTION VALUE="TP">Toilet paper
<OPTION>Cereal
<OPTION>Bread
<OPTION SELECTED>Milk
<OPTION>Butter
</SELECT>

then to set default values,(assuming the variable in which you stored it's value is 'var')
<SELECT NAME="purchase" MULTIPLE SIZE="5">
<OPTION <% if var="Soap" then response.write "selected"%>>Soap
<OPTION VALUE="TP" <% if var="TP" then response.write "selected"%>>Toilet paper
<OPTION <% if var="Cereal" then response.write "selected"%>>Cereal
<OPTION <% if var="Bread" then response.write "selected"%>>Bread
<OPTION <% if var="Milk" then response.write "selected"%>>Milk
<OPTION <% if var="Butter" then response.write "selected"%>>Butter

Similarly for a check box and Radio button (again assuming it's value stored in variable 'var')
<INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="donation" <% if var="on" then response.write "CHECKED" %> >
<INPUT TYPE="radio" NAME="somecheck" <% if var="on" then response.write "CHECKED" %> >

Yes, certainly you can do it. But it'll be very good solution only when you have many items in the list.
