Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m not a vbScript expert, but here’s one way of doing it:

<html>
<head>
<script language=”vbscript”>
sub getIndex(c)
msgbox “you selected ” & Colors(c) & ” which means ” & colorIndex(c)
end sub
</script>
</head>
<body>
<script language=”vbscript”>
‘use base index of zero on arrays
Dim ColorIndex(3),Colors(3),i
ColorIndex(0)=”Love”
ColorIndex(1)=”Jealous”
ColorIndex(2)=”Peace”
ColorIndex(3)=”Leading”
Colors(0)=”red”
Colors(1)=”yellow”
Colors(2)=”green”
Colors(3)=”blue”
document.write(“<form name=””myform””>”)
document.write(“<select name=””mycolors”” onchange =””getIndex(myform.mycolors.SelectedIndex)””>”)
for i=0 to 3
document.write(“<option>”)
document.write(Colors(i))
document.write(“</option>”)
Next
document.write(“</select>”)
</script>
</form>
</body>
</html>
