I use code similar to the below to get the selected value of a drop down list. Can someone tell me how I would get the selected name from the control also? Thank you.

      function myFunction(){
         var elem = document.getElementById('selBoxOK');
         var selValue = elem.options[ elem.selectedIndex ].value;
