    Populating A Drop Down list of Files in a folder.

    Hello!

    Ok. Here is what I am trying to do. I created a .js to talk to 3-4 Drop down boxes with info I put in them. On the last drop box i currently just having it read "download" The is the drop down box I would like to populate files in a certain folder. Can anyone give me any insite on how to go about doing so?

    This is what is on my HTML.


    <form name="myform">
    <select name="optone" size="1"
    onchange="setOptions(document.myform.optone.options[document.myform.optone.selectedIndex].value,document.myform.opttwo);">
    <option value=" " selected="selected">Select.. </option>
    <option value="1">Combo Curbs</option>
    <option value="2">Flathead Cabinets</option>


    </select>
    <select name="opttwo" size="1"onchange="setOptions(document.myform.opttwo.options[document.myform.opttwo.selectedIndex].value,document.myform.optthree);">
    <option value=" " selected="selected">------------</option>
    </select>

    <select name="optthree" size="1"onchange="setOptions(document.myform.optthree.options[document.myform.optthree.selectedIndex].value,document.myform.optfour);">
    <option value=" " selected="selected">------------</option>
    </select>

    <select name="optfour" size="1">
    <option value=" " selected="selected">------------</option>
    </select>
    </p>

    _________________________________________________________________

    This is what I have on my .js called dropdown.js (rather long)

    (The //This for the third option --------- fourth dropdown---> is where I want the files to download to show up.)


    function setOptions(chosen,selbox) {

    I might be wrong (or misunderstood your request), but unless you define a static list of "files" in your javascript, you're going to need to use server-side scripting to actually look into a webfolder to provide a listing of current files stored there.
