    Javascript for dropdown list


      I am trying to add a javascript in my pdf form. The script would check if the options in the dropdown list were selected. If not selected, there would be a pop up notifying the user that there needs to be a selection made before saving.


      Can anyone please help me with this issue?

          Since there is (normally) always one item selected, can you give an example of the items in a dropdown and which ones would count as being selected? Also, be aware that you cannot prevent a file from being saved using JavaScript, the best you can do is display an alert before it is.

            It would show "please choose an option" and when the user clicks on the drop down list, there would be 3 options that show up. these 3 options can be yes, no, not applicable. If one of those options are not selected then there would be a display alerting the user that nothing was selected from the dropdown list.


            Thank you.
