i written code for dropdown list which is multiple selecion list.what i need is i want to refer each selected item by its name so that i can use that name in somewhere else.
i am using name attribute for option tag also, i donot know option tag has name attribute.
<select name=menu multiple>
buffer.append("<OPTION name=on24url"+i+" value="+urlroot+sChon24[i]+">Consumer: health</OPTION>");
</select>

why i need this is i used check box
<input type=checkbox name=on24url"+i+" value="+urlroot+sChon24[i]+"> iam using this one in the following code.
sChurl[i]=portal.getUser().getProperty("on24url"+i);
iam trying to implement drop down list instead of checkbox.

u don't need to put name in "option"
only let the value is unique, that is enough i think

the code of a multiple select is this:

<select name="myselect" multiple>
 <option value="value1">text1</option>
 <option value="value2">text2</option>
 <option value="value3">text3</option>
 <option value="value4">text4</option>
</select>

so you must generate in this way:

<select name=menu multiple>
buffer.append("<OPTION value="+urlroot+sChon24[i]+">Consumer: health</OPTION>");
</select>

and if you need to refer to the selected items in the same page you can use javascript:

<script language="javascript">
<!--
idSelect = document.my_form_name.myselect
for (iTmp=0; iTmp < idSelect.options.lengt; iTmp++) {
  if (idSelect.options[iTmp].selected) {
    alert("Option selected " + idSelect.options[iTmp].text + " value: " + idSelect.options[iTmp].value)
  }
}
//-->
</script>
