I have a form structured like this with roughly 20 options:

<select name="appIdId">
      <option value="56T34AKJJR">Treasure Wheel Slots</option>

I have the option text in a variable like this:

apptext = "Treasure Wheel Slots";

What I need to do is get the option value (56T34AKJJR) and store that in a variable I can use later on in my code.

apptextvalue = "56T34AKJJR";

Keep in mind I will not be selecting any options, just passing the apptext into the form and returning apptextvalue.

I am not a JavaScript expert, and I would like some guidance on how to pull this off. Is this feasible?

Thank you.
