I have two multiple select dropdown lists on my page. On clicking a button I want to populate one list with the values selected from the other. Is this possible? If so, how?

Hi there:

Here goes my code to do this:

----------- 8< ---------- 8< ----
<html>
<head>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function del_option(object,indice) {
 object.options[indice] = null;
}
function add_option(object,tmp_txt,tmp_value) {
 object.length++
 object.options[object.length-1].value = tmp_value
 object.options[object.length-1].text = tmp_txt
}
function copy_object(object_origen,object_destino) {
 for (var i=0, l=object_origen.options.length;i<l;i++) {
  if (object_origen.options[i].selected) {
   add_option(object_destino,object_origen.options[i].text,object_origen.options[i].value);
  }
 }
 for (var i=object_origen.options.length-1;i>-1;i--) {
  if (object_origen.options[i].selected) {
   del_option(object_origen,i)
  }
 }
}
function copy_all(object_origen,object_destino) {
 for (var i=0, l=object_origen.options.length;i<l;i++) {
  add_option(object_destino,object_origen.options[i].text,object_origen.options[i].value);
 }
 for (var i=object_origen.options.length-1;i>-1;i--) {
  del_option(object_origen,i);
 }
}
function init() {
 document.myform.myselect2.length = 0
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
<body onload="init()">
<form name="myform">
<table border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td align="center">My select 1:<br>
<select name="myselect1" size="10" multiple>
 <option value="option1">option1</option>
 <option value="option2">option2</option>
 <option value="option3">option3</option>
 <option value="option4">option4</option>
 <option value="option5">option5</option>
 <option value="option6">option6</option>
</select></td>
<td valign="middle" align="center">
<input type="button" value="&lt;&lt; Add all" onclick="copy_all(document.myform.myselect2,document.myform.myselect1)"><br><br>
