I am having a problem with netscape. I have a select in which i dynamicly populate the options. When I click on it all is good in IE and the select list shows up.. in netscape a select list shows up but it only displays a single element.

If you have seen this Im sure you know what im talking about... if not I bet I didnt make much sense.

I know exactly what you are talking about Jmirick. (btw: welcome to WebmasterWorld).

There was nearly an identicle question to your a few months back in this subboard and no one has come forth with a solution yet. I have a similar checkbox "select all" option in "StickMail" (top bar) and it works in IE, but not netscape. Clearly there is a common theme here. I'll see what I can dig up tonight as I found a few new resources for quality js scripts dealing with forms (haven't dug through them yet).

Well.... right now I have a hack that is working (however if there is a *right* way to do this I would much rather take that route).

Currently, I hardcode 5 blank options.... and onLoad delete them before creating my dynamic options.

This works.... but Im still looking for a better way. (does netscape have a property you can set? if so I havent found it documented).

Might just have to surrender and make a mental note of another IE/Netscape quirk.
