Cc Field dropdown

I’ve had a request to have a dropdown list for the Cc field in forms.
Since this field should allow multiple addresses I don’t think it can be
made into a HTML dropdown (Select) list. They only want users to show up
in the list. It there a gizmo to provide this functionality already?
IF not, I’m thinking a button that presents a dropdown list and then
populates the Cc field would be OK. Is there any reason(s) to not do this
using Javascript? I’m pretty new to HTML::Mason so don’t want to create
problems.

In general, many people don’t like jabvascript because it is supported
differently on various browsers and not at all on others. Can you just use
an ordinary multiple select field?–On Friday, August 09, 2002 1:55 PM -0700 “Roderick A. Anderson” raanders@acm.org wrote:

My first thought was to do it this way but the problem is if they
want/need to type in an address they can’t in a select field. Of course
they say they’d never need to do otherwise but we know how that goes. :slight_smile:
A more ridged technique would be to make a view in the DB of users and
a table of others and populate the select field from it. If they want to
add someone to the Cc’d list they have to add them to the others table
first.
Of maybe (and I’m talking from a less than a week of RT experience) a
group of unprivileged users that the view could be created from.

Anyway I’ll look at non-Javascript solutions first.
