fields are a little more tricky. Here's the code I use to do it. This is a
simple tip but used on almost all my web forms.
You need to get the value of the list first with the following sample function.
form = document.forms;
with(window.form.State)//State is the field on //the form we are validating.
state=options[selectedIndex].text; //state is a variable.
if(state=="Select a State")//Select a State is //the default value in the State
alert("Please put a value in the State field");
// Call the GetStateVal() function first and then //the ValidateField()on the
OnClick event of your //submit button.
//I code the submit button with HTML in 4.6 like //the following:
<LEFT><INPUT TYPE = "BUTTON" VALUE = " Submit " onClick = "GetStateVal();
call GetStateVal() //and ValidateField() functions.
