In Feb of this year.  Timbo87 gave a very short but very effective solution for adding items to a select box using JavaScript:

selectBox.length++
selectBox[selectBox.length-1].text = "new item"

I need to know what the equivalent VBScript code would be.  Or, if there really isn't an equivalant code using VBScript, perhaps someone can tell  me if there is a way to easily pass variables created/assigned  in VBScript  to JavaScript.

I got it to add a space for the item, but just not the text.  I need to look somemore.

<html>
<head>
<script language="vbscript">

Function AddItem(form)
dim itemSel, intItems
      
    itemSel = form.newitem.value
    intItems = form.sel1.length
    form.sel1.length = intItems + 1
   

end function

</script>
</head>
<body>
<form name="frmAdd">
<input type="text" value="" name="newitem">
<input type="button" name="abtn" value="add" Onclick="AddItem(frmAdd)">
<br>
<select name="sel1">
<option value="">Value1</option>
<option value="">Value2</option>
<option value="">Value3</option>
</select>
</form>
</body>
</html>

This should help you....

<form name="test">

<select name="state" size="1">
  <option value="" selected></option>
  <option value="v1">v1</option>
  <option value="v2">v2</option>
  <option value="v3">v3</option>
</select>

<SCRIPT language = "VBScript">
    function additem()
      Set objOpt = document.CreateElement("OPTION")
      objOpt.Value = 1                        
      objOpt.Text = "v4"
      document.test.state.add objOpt
      Set objOpt = Nothing
    end function
</SCRIPT>

<input type=button value=add onclick="additem()">

</form>

In your case, it should be..

    Set objOpt = document.CreateElement("OPTION")
    objOpt.Value =  "new item"
    objOpt.Text =  "new item"
    selectBox.add objOpt
