<title>Example</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){

 $('#openSSS').click(function(){
  $('#sss').click();
 });

});

</script>
</head>
<body>

<select name="Choose_One" id="sss"> 
<option value="a">Option 1</option>

Why not? You have make just a small mistake see

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){

 $('#openSSS').click(function(){
  var selval=$('#sss').val();
  alert(selval);
 });

});

</script>

Open in new window

That solution is useless.  I want the options to slide down when you click on the button.  I do not need an alert!
