hello, i have a drop down menu called DDvehAttr

there are 7 values in this drop down (which is preloaded via backend) and the values are 1-7.

when the user clicks on an image i would like to alter the selected value in the DDvehAttr drop down with an onclick event.

there are 7 images in total and i would hope to do something like the following:

<img value="choice1" onclick="changevalue()" />
<img value="choice2" onclick="changevalue()" />

Function changevalue()
If choice1 selected THEN update DDvehAttr = 1
If choice2 selected THEN update DDvehAttr = 2
can anyone assist me with a straightforward script that achieves this outcome..

thank you
