Firstly, there is no such thing as a "combo box" in HTML. Please read this for more information.

Please explain what you are trying to do in more detail. It sounds like Ajax, not JSP, is what you will need.

Actually i am getting the values in the select list from table.I want what ever the value i select in combo box its corresponding records will display in their respective text box.
e.g suppose i select ram values from the combo box and its corresponding records like full name, last name ,address etc should be display in their respective text box.

Hi,
I am able to get the values in drop down list from the table.But i am
not able to understand how to get the related values when we select any value from the drop down list.
Example. suppose i have 3 values in the drop down box i.e 1,2,3
If i select value 2 then its corresponding records should display in the page
Please give some hint of code how to do this.

Thanks

write a javasript function which will submit the form...
call the javascript function from the "onClick" event/onChange event (not sure which one)...

populate the table using JSP or servlet based on the request parameter from the page....

This is not an ajax solution but a normal request response solution... It will work!
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
