for instance, let’s say we have a drop-down with the following items:

dog

cat

rabbit

is there a way to dynamically set the selected item(s)? if, for instance, the user is a reviewer and trying to look over a form someone had previously filled out, how can we set the previously selected item in the drop-down?

another example would be if the person had previously selected states from a u.s. state’s list input. if they went in to adjust their answers at a later time, how can we set those previously selected states again?

essentially, is there a way to access the “selected” property of drop-down and list objects programmatically so we can say “set item ‘cat’ as selected” or “set items ‘ohio’,’texas’, and ‘new york’ as selected”?

thanks,

paul
