I think you need to do:
my $option = $session->make_element( 'option', value=>"value1" selected=>"selected");

Cheers,

Subject: [EP-tech] Simple(?) eprints make_element question

Hi List,
                I’m doing some work on a theme for our new repository, and I’m adding a <select> drop down form. I’m using:


my $select = $session->make_element( 'select', name=>"select_name”);

and

my $option = $session->make_element( 'option', value=>"value1");

to get:

<select name="select_name">
<option value="value1">value1</option>
<option value="value2">value2</option>
</select>

And I’d like to be able to add a ‘selected’ to one of the options.  So it renders like this:

<select name="select_name">
<option value="value1" selected>value1</option>
<option value="value2">value2</option>
</select>


Any ideas?

Thanks,
