in java or javascript?

<script>
var myvar = "";
</script>

<form>
<select name="select3" onChange="myvar=this[this.selectedIndex].value">
<option value="01" selected>1</option>
<option value="02">2</option>
<option value="03">3</option>
<option value="04">4</option>
</select>
</form>


Now the selected value will be in the variable myvar.

regards,
CJ

20 points for such a thing is very little!

Create a public method in your java applet:

public void addValue(int myval)
{
  ...assign variable here...
}

Once compiled I assume you give the APPLET tag the id and / or name "myapp1"

<form>
<select name="select3" onChange="document.myapp1.addValue(this[this.selectedIndex].value)">
<option value="01" selected>1</option>
<option value="02">2</option>
<option value="03">3</option>
<option value="04">4</option>
</select>
</form>


Please note that this will NOT work in IE5 on the macintosh.
