Hi,

I need to retrieve the value (The selected item - Not actual value) from the below combo box.
For an example: By Towns - when user select an item from combo box.  I am able to retrieve the value 2,
but I need actual selected item - "By Towns"


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
function SelectRegionTowns(combobox)
msgbox  document.InfolineForm.cboRegion.selectedIndex
msgbox combobox.value
end function
</SCRIPT>



<td width="30%">
<SELECT NAME="cboRegion" OnChange="SelectRegionTowns(document.InfolineForm.cboRegion)"
size="1" tabindex="5">
<OPTION VALUE="1">Statewide: All Towns Selected
<OPTION VALUE="2">By Towns
<OPTION VALUE="3">By Region
<OPTION VALUE="4">By County
<OPTION VALUE="5">By LUW
</SELECT></td>


Thank you for any help that you will give

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
   function SelectRegionTowns(combobox)
      msgbox combobox.options(combobox.selectedIndex).text
   end function
</SCRIPT>
