This is a simply drop down box with three selections, one, two and three. while i try to select option two, i need a message box pop up showing two, if i select option three, the message box will show three. However i got the below error while i select it. Any problem with this simple codes ?

Error: 'document.form1.select.value' is null or not an object

print_r($_POST); print"<br>";
$a = $_GET[select];
print $a;

<select name='select' onchange='go(this)'>
<option value='one'>one</option>
<option value='two'>two</option>
<option value='three'>three</option>
<form name='form1'>
<input type='hidden' name='txtSelect' value='select'>

<script type="text/javascript">
function go(opt)
var name = document.form1.select.value;
alert (name);

This is a Javascript question, not a PHP question.

Create a normal hard coded HTML form and get your javascript working, then put in your PHP.

Change your onchange to this:

onchange="javascript: go(this, this.selectedIndex);"

Change your JS function to this:

<script type="text/javascript">
function go(x, y) {
alert (x[y].value);

Please post your questions in the proper forum in the future...this should be in the Javascript forum.
