Hey, thanks in advance for respoding. This is a javascript question about the onChange event handler. I'm trying to dynamically modify a table based on what elements are selected in drop downs. Here's code for one of them:
<select name="cpu" onChange="updateList(0);">
<option selected>-- - - - --Select CPU-- - - - --</option>
<option value="AMD DURON 800&49.99"> AMD Duron 800 </option>
<option value="AMD DURON 850&59.99"> AMD Duron 850 </option>
< !--....and so on, and so on....-->

Now, i have several of these. Here's the updateList function:
function updateList(ntype)
var selected;
< !-- ntype is dependant on which drop down menu is selected. Each drop down contains various computer components grouped together -->
strings = svalue.split("&");
sname = strings[0];
fcost = parseInt(strings[1]);
list.firstChild.ChildNodes[0].firstchild.firstchild.nodevalue="AMD DURON 800";


As far as i know, the problem is not with the function but in the function call. I am using MSIE 6.0 and whenever i select "AMD DURON 800" from the select box, i get an error message at the function call line saying "object expected" (error code 0). Any suggestion? Thanks.....

You posted this in the Java in General forum, I'm moving it to the HTML/Javascript froum where you'll probably get a better response.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
