I have created a web page which works fine with IE. but not with Netscape.
Can somebody tell me why netscape always alerts Null ?




<html>
<head>
     <title>Untitled</title>
</head>

<body>
<form>
<select name="list1" onchange="alert(form.list1.value)">
<option value="position1">option 1</option>
<option value="position2">option 2</option>
</select>
</form>
</body>
</html>

that will work in IE and NS.

also, if you want the long way ( reference thru the form )

onchange="alert(this.form.list1.options[this.form.list1.selectedIndex].value)">

and to answer your question ... for a SELECT object, this.value is a Microsoft Specific (non-standard) way to reference the selected value.  Netscape does not support the value property for the SELECT object itself ... but instead only for the OPTIONS in the SELECT.  IE supports both.
