Hello the forum,

At first thank you for this site and all these scripts. :)

Please I need help wth Dynamic Ajax Content, someone can show me, if it's possible, how to do in order that when the page loads the first time, I have not the sentence Choose a page to load , but rather the first item displayed ?

Dynamic Ajax Content (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ajaxcontent.htm)

function ajaxcombo(selectobjID, loadarea){
var selectobj=document.getElementById? document.getElementById(selectobjID) : ""
if (selectobj!="" && selectobj.options[selectobj.selectedIndex].value!="")
ajaxpage(selectobj.options[selectobj.selectedIndex].value, loadarea)
//if absolute path : ajaxpage(rootdomain+"/"+selectobj.options[selectobj.selectedIndex].value, loadarea)
<div id="leftcolumn">
<select id="ajaxmenu" size="1" onChange="ajaxcombo('ajaxmenu', 'rightcolumn')">

<option value="ajaxfiles/external3.htm">Aston Martin Page</option>
<div id="rightcolumn"><h3>Choose a page to load.</h3></div>
<div style="clear: left; margin-bottom: 1em"></div>

Thanks in advance, Kim.

I have found a solution, just add this code in the head tag :

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$('#rightcolumn').load('ajaxfiles/external.htm', '', function(response, status, xhr) {
if (status == 'error') {
var msg = "Sorry but there was an error: ";
$(".content").html(msg + xhr.status + " " + xhr.statusText);
Thanks for all, cordially.
