Hi: I have a (series of 4) 2-char input field(s) (vertically oriented in a crowded part of my screen) in which the user will input a U.S. State Abbreviation (e.g., AZ for Arizona), or a Canadian province (e.g., AB for Alberta), OR, click a key to return this correct abbreviation. I have, of course, a concordance file with all the correct names and region abbreviations. But, my problem: If my user knows that the input U.S. State name should be the correct abbreviation for (say) Minnesota, but does not know the abbreviation itself (i.e., MN), how can I show the user a drop-down list of States & Provinces, from which the return value will always be the proper abbreviation, and *not* the full State name ? I don't know how to configure the <Select > tag for this operation. My head is aching here Thanks for a kick in the pants on this one !
