I need to populate a drop-down list in a form with a list of Country Codes that can be obtained by calling CountryCode.getCountryCodes(), which returns a List. I am trying to use a JavaScript function to do this, but it doesn't seem to be working. I have included the code below. I am still new to JS, so please be kind.

<script language="JavaScript1.2">
import jblocks.data.CountryCode;
function loadCountryCodes() {
countryCodes = new Array(CountryCode.getCountryCodes().size());

for (i = 0; i < countryCodes.length; i++) {
countryCodes[i] = CountryCode.getCountryCodes().get(i);
}

document.Table2FORM.nationality.options = countryCodes;
}
</script>
...and right before the <form> tag...
<script language="JavaScript1.2">loadCountryCodes();</script>

Any help that can be offered would be much appreciated!

It shows you how to add the information to the select element.

Is this client-side or server-side JavaScript?

jblocks.data.CountryCode is the class where the data resides. CountryCode.getCountryCodes returns a List of CountryCodes. So the data is in a class, not in a database.

<form>
<select name=nationality>
<%for (int i = 0; i < countryCodes.length; i++) {%>
<option value="<%=CountryCode.getCountryCodes().get(i)%>"><%=CountryCode.getCountryCodes().get(i)%></option>
<%}%>
</select>
</form>
