Hello all,
I'm using javascript in a JSP which uses the onchange() function to populate 4 drop down boxes that are linked. Based on the options selected in the JSP a graphic is created. Now when I go back to the JSP, I want all the options selected on the form to be retained. However the Drop Down menus do not retain their values. Please help!

I don't quite get whats explained in http://www.coderanch.com/t/112616/HTML-JavaScript/retaining-form-field-after-submission
thanks in advance

you need the browser to remmeber the values, either you need to use a cookie on the client side, or you need to capture them on the server side.
