Hi
I have the following DDL:
<ul id="buttons">
      <label for="activities">Activity</label>      
      <select id="activities" onChange="setMarkers();">
        <option value="venues">Venues</option>
        <option value="bikes">Bikes</option>        
        <option value="all" selected="selected">show all</option>
      </select>
      <label for="prices">Prices</label>  
      <select id="prices" onChange="setMarkers();">
        <option value="0">0</option>
        <option value="< 5">< 5</option>
        <option value="> 5">> 5</option>
        <option value="< 10">< 10</option>
        <option value="> 10">> 10</option>
        <option value="all" selected="selected">show all</option>
      </select>
   </ul> 

Open in new window


I want to make this look good by using the bootstrap framework but I haven't been able to find any information on how I can build a drop down list with HTML that will do the same as the above... adding value="" doesn't appear to work!

thanks

A jsfiddle sample using your list. I included an example of how you might capture selections.
