displaying further information when selecting a value in Drop-down box
Posted on 2003-11-12
I'm using a drop-down box in a HTML-form:
<select style='font-size:10px' name='projects' class='general' >
<option type='text' value='PJ01' selected>PJ01</option>
<option type='text' value='PJ02'>PJ02</option>
The user can choose between "PJ01" and "PJ02". In order to give the user more information about the selected Projects, i want to display further information to the user somehow (e.g. next to the mouse-arrow..). If the user selects "PJ01" in the drop-down list then he should read the "help"-text : "Project 1 ...". If he selects "PJ02" he should read "Project 2...." . I know how to enable a helptext in textfields with the on mouseover-event but not with drop-down lists. So how can i achive this goal in a dropdown-list??
Thanks for any help :-)
