Select Box with Options

Krijn Hoetmer Nov 10, 2006


Use this script to easily change the order of options in a select box. You can see the order change as it happens in the "New Order" box. (The input can be hidden and used to change the order on the server side.)

You might re-check your script. It works fine for me using Firefox

It works fine for me in Firefox. If you need additional help, you'll need to post your question [a href=""]over on the forums[/a].

The code works excellent for IE, but not for Mozilla Firebfox. Anyone knows why?

This is very simple script and it does not work when there are more elements then user can see at the same time (there is vertical scrall bar). In FF it does not scrall down to the selected element, it just selectes it but scralls list box to the top :(
