Default Remove value of dropdown list when textbox changed


I have values gathered from database, for the dropdown menu.
For example:
A - 5
B - 10
C - 100
And there is a textbox which value will change the dropdown list.
If user fill in the textbox, the dropdown menu should changed accordingly.
For example if user choose 1, the dropdown list will be : A, B, C
However if user fill in 11, the list will be : C (A and B removed)

Is there any javascript code able to do this.

Hii sn00pyg4rfi3ld
Since your dropdownlist is populated from the database,if you want your requirements to be fullfill then it's not a good idea to bind all the options on the server(Think when user enter 30 then all the options with values less than 30 has removed, Now again user enter the value 2 Then it must show all the options with values equalto or greater than 2 )
So i do feel that it's better to put their those values in Array on the client side,now you can achieve ur requirement.
For example, Try this code
Hope this will help you
arrOptionval=new Array("1","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9","10","11 ","12","13","14","15","16","17","18","19","20","21 ","22","23","24","25","26")
arrOptionname=new Array("A","B","C","D","E","F","G","H","I","J","K", "L","M","N","O","P","Q","R","S","T","U","V","w","X ","Y","Z")

function pageonload()
var opt
   opt=new Option(arrOptionname[i]+" ",arrOptionval[i])

function textChanged(obj)



     opt=new Option(arrOptionname[i]+" ", arrOptionval[i])


<body onload="pageonload()">
<input type=text id=inval onblur="textChanged(this)">
<select id="selectbox" size=10 multiple>

Cheers :)
