I have a dropdown menu. When the user selects from the menu(ie OnChange) I should open a new page and to that page I have to pass a string. I need a detailed Explaination with code
I've tried in the following way but I am getting a compilation error
<select name="Alphabet" OnChange='Location.href="xxx.htms"?Alphabet=<%=this.options[this.options.SelectedIndex].value%>'">
Note I am trying with out the "post" or "get"

I think that you are mixing levels. You want that the client go to a page according to a selection on the client. But you are including ASP code in that client part. Try:

<select name="Alphabet" OnChange='Location.href="xxx.htms?Alphabet="+this.options[this.options.SelectedIndex].value'">

All JavaScript in the client. I am constructing a string from "xxx.htms?Alphabet=" and the selected option and assigning it to location.href.
