Hi All,

In JS can you set the value of a SELECT dropdown box by text value, not index value?

The following will set the SELECT box by the index value, selecting the second value in the dropdown box

var varyear = 1
document.myform.year.options[varyear].selected = true;

however i want to set it like this...
var varyear = 2006
document.myform.year.options[varyear].selected = true;

...to set the SELECTED value to 2006...which doesn't work

Thanks for any help
