In code, how can I traverse a TWebBrowser's page and find a list control by its ID (LogBookPanel1_ddLogType) and select a item from the list?

thanks

 <select name="LogBookPanel1$ddLogType" id="LogBookPanel1_ddLogType">
<option selected="selected" value="-1">- Select One -</option>
<option value="13">Retrieve from WCMC</option>
<option value="19">Grab it from somewhere else</option>
<option value="4">Write note</option>
<option value="48">Discovered it</option>
<option value="-1">- Select One -</option>
</select>
