View Full Version : Getting text out of Web Dropdown boxes

You have probably seen them before, a dropdown box with every country in the world.

So how do I get a one line entry for each item in the Dropdown box.

Thanks....John.

Sorry John, I don't understand your problem. Yes the drop-down boxes offer a raft of options, but once you have clicked the one you want, that is the end of the rest.

Can you clarify what you are trying to do?

Cheers

What im after, is a copy of the listed items in the Dropdown box, in the example given, Every country in the World..

Ive saved the page, then looked at the source Code, hoping it might be in there, no luck to date.

Cheers....John.

Once you've copied the list, if you have NoteTab Light, paste the code into a new text document, then go Modify, Strip HTML Tags, and you end up with clean text, like so:

ALFA ROMEO ASTON MARTIN AUDI BENTLEY BMW CHRYSLER CITROEN DAEWOO DAIHATSU DAIMLER FERRARI FORD FTE - FORD HOLDEN HOLDEN SPECIAL VEHICLES HONDA HSV HYUNDAI ISUZU JAGUAR JEEP KIA LAMBORGHINI LAND ROVER LEXUS LOTUS MASERATI MAZDA MERCEDES MG MINI MITSUBISHI MORGAN NISSAN NISSAN SPECIAL VEHICLES PEUGEOT PORSCHE PROTON RANGE ROVER RENAULT ROLLS-ROYCE ROVER SAAB SUBARU SUZUKI TATA TOYOTA VOLKSWAGEN VOLVO

After which you can auto-table-ise it in Word.
