Default opening a pop up from a list menu

I have two related drop-downs that are populated by Javascript arrays.
I would like one of those selections to open in a pop-up --- ONLY one.
Here's the chunk of code from the second drop-down where I want the first link to open in a pop-up: Obviously this code is not working but I thought it was the best way to "tell" you what I want to do...

************************************************** ***

group[1][0]=new Option("Select your model"," ");

group[1][1]=new Option("ModelName","page.asp","","location=no,menu bar=no,directories=no,width=500,height=300,menubar =no,resizable=no,toolbar=no");

group[1][2]=new Option("ModelName2","page2.asp");


************************************************** ***

Any help is always appreciated,

You can't just add a few parameters and expect code to work. If you want to open a popup when someone chooses the second item in your listbox then you need to have an onchange handler on it. Then you can test if the option chosen is the second one and then use window.open.

Look here for the onchange event and also the window.open method:
