Hi,

I created a web page with two pull down windows.  The top pull down works just fine.  The second pull down will not work for some reason.  I can't figure out why the second pull down will not work.  

I don't know if it's better to include the source here or give you a link to the page so you can see it fail.  Please let me know your preference.

Please feel free to include corrected html here.  

Thank you,

Gary

What is it you think is wrong with them? They work fine for me with IE5.

I think we will need some more detail about what the problem is.

Try changing your select statemnts to
<select name="menu" onChange="location=document.forms[0].menu.options[document.forms[0].menu.selectedIndex].value;" value="GO">

and

<select name="menu" onChange="location=document.forms[1].menu.options[document.forms[1].menu.selectedIndex].value;" value="GO">

Hi ckosloski,

That worked great.  :-)

Currently the first form has:
<form name="jump">

And the second form has:
<form name="goto">

Are they supposed to relate to anything?

Note:  I have updated the page to your suggestions.

Do you have any other suggestions to make the page nicer?

Thank you a bunch,

Gary

Hi Gary,

The problem is that netscape doesn't work to well when you use the actual form name.  So instead you use the forms array, where 0 is the first form, 1 is the second form, etc.

No other suggestions.  You can just accept my answer.
