is it possible that a can place a class(or stylesheet on the combobox?
and how can I add row with an image(with 'a href') on it?
and can you also provide deleting the rows?

Hi,
In this example you may see selecction, image and link added to new row,
and function to delete row in table according to row index:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE></TITLE>

<style>
.selectStyle
{
      color: red;
      background-color: pink;
}
</style>
<script>
function update()
{

     //get table
     var tableObj = document.getElementById("myTable");    
     var tableOldSize = tableObj.rows.length;
     //add row at the end of the table
     var rowObj = tableObj.insertRow(tableOldSize);
     var cell_1 = rowObj.insertCell(0);    
     cell_1.innerHTML="<select id='select1' name='select1' class='selectStyle'><option id='option1' name='option1' value='Option 1'>Option 1</option><option id='option2' name='option2' value='Option 2'>Option 2</option></select>"

     var cell_2 = rowObj.insertCell(1);    
     cell_2.innerHTML="<img src='http://www.experts-exchange.com/images/certification.gif'>"

       var cell_3 = rowObj.insertCell(2);    
     cell_3.innerHTML="<a href='http://www.experts-exchange.com'>Link</a>";

     //add colspan to previous rows
     for (i = 0; i < tableOldSize; i++)
     {
          tableObj.rows[i].cells[0].colSpan="3";
     }
     
}


function deleteRows(rowIndex)
{
      var tableObj = document.getElementById("myTable");  
      tableObj.deleteRow(rowIndex);
}
</script>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<table name="myTable" id="myTable" border="1">
     <tr>
          <td>row 1</td>
     </tr>
     <tr>
          <td>row 2</td>
     </tr>
</table>
<br>
<input type="button" value="Add rows" onCLick="javascript: update()"><br>
<input type="button" value="Delete rows" onClick="deleteRows(0)">
</BODY>
