A program that can do that, would be difficult (but possible). But I can tell you how to edit an option of a selectbox.Each option consists of both a "value" (if added) and "text" (the text visible in the list). The value of the selected option will be the value of the selectbox when submitted.To choose the options of a <select>:

selectbox_name.options[index]
To choose the index number of the selected option:
selectbox_name.selectedIndex
To choose the selected option of a <select>:
selectbox_name.options[selectbox_name.selectedIndex]
To choose the visible name of the selected option:
selectbox_name.options[selectbox_name.selectedIndex].text
To choose the invisible value of the selected option:
selectbox_name.options[selectbox_name.selectedIndex].value
To modify the visible text of an option:
selectbox_name.options[selectbox_name.selectedIndex].text = "user_input"
Replace the greens by the correct form names.Replace the blue by the index number you want, beginning with '0'.I hope this helped :) Edited by Dan The Prof
