i want to validate that a selection is made when the form is submitted. the tricky part is i also have an option where the user can add more rows so that they can insert more than 1 record at a time. how do i get the js to validate?
this is my html and js notice the name of the select is 'cid'
<td bgcolor="#666666"><SELECT name='cid' class="one_pixel_border">
<option selected value="">Select One</option>
$cQuery = mysql_query("SELECT cid, category FROM category");
while ($sRow = mysql_fetch_row($cQuery))
print ("<OPTION value='$sRow'>$sRow</OPTION>");
if (thisform.cid.selectedIndex < 1)
alert("Please select a category.");
