    Building options list from XML


    I am trying to get an ASP page to dynamically populate an Options list for
    a "combo box" (drop down) Select control, based on XML retrieved from another
    ASP page (I can build the ASP internally, if necessary).

    I know how to process XML using DOM in VBScript, and I know how to add and
    delete entries from the options list using javascript, but I don't know how
    to do both in one language.

    Any advice would be appreciated...

    Thanks,

    Bob Rouse

    Why don't you use ASP to dynamically generate the combo box?
    <%
    Response.write "<SELECT>"
    DO WHILE youHavedata
    Response.write "<OPTION>" & YourXMLdata & "</OPTION>
    LOOP
    Response.write "</SELECT>"
    %>
