Hi
In my application, i am crreating a dynamic drop down list using javascript and its working fine when i am using IE browser. If i am trying same with firefox, its not wotking. Can anyone suggest me how to solve this issue. Here is the code which i am using.

function addOption(selectbox,text,value )
{
var optn = document.createElement("OPTION");
optn.text = text;
optn.value = value;
selectbox.options.add(optn);
}

Problem is with the line " selectbox.options.add(optn); ". Can anyone suggest me alternate option or how to make this work.

Thanks

If I recall correctly, W3C standards, which of course IE ignores almost completely, dictate a second parameter to the add() method that specifies the position of the option in the list.
