Hi everybody. I'm new to Javascript, and here's what I'm trying to do. I've got two dropdown boxes ('language' and 'word'). When the submit button is pressed, I want a div to show with the right word in it. I can do this fine with one dropdown box, but two has got me stumped. Any ideas would be much appreciated. S

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

You can call the same function form the selection changed event on both boxes. In your function make the first thing you do checking to make sure the selected index of both boxes are set. Then proceed processing code.
