Default 'onChange'

my code:

<select name="book_date" id="book_date" onChange="form.submit()">
<option value="<%=date()%>">Today</option>
<option value="<%=date()-1%>">1 day ago</option>
<option value="<%=date()-2%>">2 days ago</option>
<option value="<%=date()-3%>">3 days ago</option>
<option value="<%=date()-4%>">4 days ago</option>
<option value="<%=date()-5%>">5 days ago</option>
</select>

however, when i try to select 'Today' for the first time(when the page loads initially) it doesnt go to the next page. only 'onChange' of the other values, 1 day ago, 2 days ago etc......

any ideas?

Default

It is because today is the first option and is default. On load of the page, you can directly use today as default and show details for today.

Other solution could be add first option as
<option value="0">-Select-</option>

so that user can select today from the dropdown.
