This question is written in regards to the coldfusion tag <cfselect>.

In my <cfselect> tag, I have a recordset successfully populating a list box.  I would like the value attribute to be passed to a JavaScript onChange() event inside of the <cfselect> tag, and it seems like the <cfselect> does not want to give up the value to JavaScript inside it's execution.

I have researched using a <cfloop> or an <cfarray> to do this, but ideally I would like to set the value in the onchange() event of the <cfselect> tag.  That way, I can work with a single user selection once they have made it during the submit form action.

The code examples are a straight-forward <cfselect> for a query so there is really nothing special to note there.  

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
