I would like to check an drop down list value on a form page with a numeric list to see if the value is in the list.
How can this be done via Javascript?

For example:
 
var myList = new Array(2,3,14,25); // the id list to check against

var fieldVal = thing[thing.selectedIndex].value; // the numeric selected drop down field value


if(fieldVal == myList[idx])
    alert("Yes the drop down value is in my array list");
else
    alert("No. the drop down value is not in the array list");

Array.prototype.contains = function(obj) {
    var i = this.length;
    while (i--) {
        if (this[i] == obj) {
            return true;
        }
    }
    return false;
}

var myList = new Array(2,3,14,25); // the id list to check against
var fieldVal = parseInt( thing[thing.selectedIndex].value );

if( myList.contains(fieldVal) )
    alert("Yes the drop down value is in my array list");
else
    alert("No. the drop down value is not in the array list");

for (var i=0; i < myList.length; i++) {
	if (fieldVal == myList[i]) {
		alert("Yes the drop down value is in my array list");
	}else{
		alert("No. the drop down value is not in the array list");
	}
}
