I have a listbox on a page, I want to refresh the page (to populate another listbox) when the user changes the value of this listbox.  I cant seem the get the right onChange event to make it work.

Any help?

Try this..

===================================================
<SCRIPT Language="JAVASCRIPT">
function refreshPage(obj)
{
  str = obj.value
  location.href = "urPage.asp?id=" + str
// This will call same page with a value selected in list 1 to populate secodn list box..
}
</SCRIPT>

<select onchange="refreshPage(this)">
</select>

<%
if Request.QueryString("id") <> "" Then
%>
<select name="seondlistbox">

To my knowledge, I don't think you can do that unless you set a timer and request for the listbox to be updated every few seconds which would be impractical - too much traffic. I would put a refresh button next to the list box. Before the user selects a value, he/she may click on the refresh button to verify that the list is up to date. Within the code for the list box, insert an onchange=refresh() and insert the following code to the top of code together with all the other functions.

<script type="text/javascript">
function refresh()
  {
    location.reload()
  }
</script>

Hello

I am wondering what else you were looking from experts ?? I guess you already got sufficiant number of solution to ur problem. you should accept a reasonable answer for u out of these solutions..

If still u think.. u r looking for more help.. u can ask experts for further assistance.

Well.. if u r sure.. u want to close this question.. u can add a request in community section to delete this question.. But personally.. i feel it will discourage experts to give u solution in ur future problems..

anyway.. all the best..

good bye
