I have a combo box, it contains some items. Every value has its equivalent .pdf file.

When the user select any option from the Combobox, the corresponding file should get downloaded.

<html>
<head>

</head>
<body>
<form name="f">
      <label>Select your course</label>
      <select id="cmbcourses">
            <option value="">Select Course...</option>
            <option value="BCom.pdf">B.Com</option>
            <option value="BBA.pdf">BBA</option>
            <option value="BCA.pdf">BCA</option>
      </select>
</form>
</body>
