Hi MindStickians!

This gets the value of whatever is selected in my dropdown menu.


For those not sure, here's the HTML for a drop down box.

<select name="newSkill" id="newSkill">
    <option value="1">A skill</option>
    <option value="2">Another skill</option>
    <option value="3">Yet another skill</option>

Thanks in advance

    var selectedText = skillsSelect.options[skillsSelect.selectedIndex].text;
