Hi Experts,

I got the scripts from EE and was testing on it, but there's some problems:

<script language="JavaScript">
      function gotosite(url)
      {
            window.location.href=url;

      }
</script>

<cfselect name="type" multiple="no" passthrough="onChange='gotosite(this.options[this.selectedIndex].value)'">
<cfoutput query="ssr_albumtype_list">
      <option value='photo_add.cfm?type=#albumtype#'>#albumtype#</option>
</cfoutput>      
</cfselect>


Dropdown values
- member
- public
Ok, When i select a value (public) from the dropdown, the page will refresh itself. But the type i selected did not change in the dropdown box, it is still (member). I can't select back the (member) value. What is wrong with my codes?

Alrite, that was a fast answer, thx.. XD

I got another question though, quicks answers too.. =P

Alrite, when i click on this link "photo_add.cfm" (without defining ?type= at the back) the server will give me an error. "TYPE is undefined in URL". What can i do?
