I am using dojo filteringselect control and bind the values from DB. I want to do a validation in javascript and want to take the selected value. When I am doing this I got an error
''options' is null or not an object'. Kindly help to overcome this issue and below is the javascript and aspx code.


var sel = document.getElementById("testdropdown");
var str1Try = sel.options[sel.selectedIndex].value;

<select dojotype="dijit.form.FilteringSelect" autocomplete="true" id="testdropdown" name="testdropdown" style="width: 200px;" runat="server">

Thanks in advance,

Say this is your select list :

<select id="testdropdown">
<option value="1">Option1</option>
<option value="2" selected="selected">Option2</option>
<option value="3">Option3</option>

var sel = document.getElementById("testdropdown");
var optionValue = sel.options[sel.selectedIndex].value;
var optionText = sel.options[sel.selectedIndex].text;

optionValue = 2
optionText = Option2

So check whether your select list have the value.

I don't know which explorer you using but, in IE if you provide the same name for "id" and "name" attribute , then it through that type of error.

//For most of the dijit.form widgets, the value can be fetched by widget.get('value')
var value = dijit.byId('testdropdown').get('value');
