Creating a drop down box that automatically leads to a different page

I am trying to create a drop down menu that when the option is selected it will automatically send the browser to that page.  I am using FP2000, and would rather use HTML code then anything else.

Hello Sir.

If you need two boxes (combo boxes) example code can be found here:  http://javascript.internet.com/navigation/combined-menu.html

For just a single box, you can modify the code slightly so that it is only looking for one input.

Is that what you were looking for, or something a little different??

That is most of it, but I do not want them to have to click the "select" button.  I want them to pick the option from the drop down, and then it would automoatically move them to that page.

Gotcha!

What you want is something like this???

<form name="JumpMenu" >
<select size="2" name="Jump1" onchange="window.open(this.options[this.selectedIndex].value,'_self');" >
<option selected >Don't Pick me</option>
<option value='http://classylinks.ca' >ClassyLinks</option>
<option value='http://classythemes.com'>ClassyThemes</option>
<option value='http://mysite.classylinks.ca'>Cool ASP stuff</option>
</select>

Classy,
  When I try to import that code into my existing page, I get a single box, not a drop down.  If I click on one of the options, it does open a new window, just can't get it to go to the page I want it to.  Also, I need a drop down, not just a box with the options in it.  thanks for your help.

It is a drop down...just change the size to 1, like this:

<form name="JumpMenu" >
<select size="1" name="Jump1" onchange="window.open(this.options[this.selectedIndex].value,'_self');"
>
<option selected >Don't Pick me</option>
<option value='http://classylinks.ca' >ClassyLinks</option>
<option value='http://classythemes.com'>ClassyThemes</option>
<option value='http://mysite.classylinks.ca'>Cool ASP stuff</option>
</select>

Post your form here, and I'll help you make some changes to it to get it to work.
