Hi,

I need to display database table column values on JSP page whenever a user selects particular column name from Combo Box.I have dynamically populated column names in the Combo box. Below is the code.

<%
ResultSetMetaData rsmd = rs.getMetaData();

out.println("<SELECT>");
for(int i=1;i<=rsmd.getColumnCount();i++)
{
out.println("<OPTION>"+rsmd.getColumnName(i)+"<OPTION>");

}
out.println("</SELECT>");
%>
Now the problem is I am not getting how to display particular column values
based on the selected combobox value.

Could anybody give me an approach.

Just as in hand-written HTML, use the selected attribute on the appropriate option element.

Oh, and an HTML select element isn't a "Combo Box" so it's confusing to refer to it as so.
