pagination jumping to anchors

Im not a javascript or HTML expert so bare with me:
we have a page that shows results in a table- that table has pagination at the top and the bottom of the table.
the pagination is a "<<prev" link, a select page select control, and a "next>>" link
when a link is clicked the page gets the next range of results and then jumps to an anchor at the top of the table in an "onclick" event.

Our problem is that when selecting a page in the select control, there is not an onclick event fired, so we do not know how to get it to jump to the top anchor.

Any ideas??

Thx in advance

you can use onChange in the SELECT control to call the same logic that you call in the onClick of the links.

If I understand your problem correctly, you are using select HTML control. It has 'onChange' event. You can use it the same way as 'onClick' and assign the same (or another) JavaScript function to it.

<select onChange="some_func();">
<option > val1 </option>
<option> val2 </option>
...
</select>

By the way, select and option can also have 'onclick'.

The links where not using javascript to get to the anchor,  they just use an href
the select doesnt have an ahref property.

I guess we needed to know the javascript funtion that got you to the top of the page which we found to be
window.location.hash='top';
thx for the help
