You can use the SELECTED property of the Option you are looking at :


is TRUE if the first option in the Dropdown called mySelect on the form called myForm is selected. In the case of a multiple select, then each will be set to true.

Hi Anshul
Alternatively we can get

now you can check which option is selected.
function temp()
whichindex=document.testform.firstlst.selectedInde x
 //option is set
 // option is not set
<form name="testform">
<select name=firstlst onchange="temp()">
<option value=0>SelectNumber </option>
<option value=1>1 </option>
<option value=2>2</option>
<option value=3>3</option>
<option value=4>4</option>
<option value=5>5</option>
Hope this will help you
