Via the selected name, say, $POST['location']. I usually use the db code table method 
and something like:
echo setupSelect($db,"locations","LocName","LocName",$_POST['location']);

If you were using hard coded values like Active, Inactive,etc you can just do a:
$status = array('Active','Inactive');
$status[$_POST['status']] = 'selected;
echo buildSelect($status);

It doesn't handle multi selects and it's resulting arrays, but that should be too hard 
to do by checking if the selected value is an array & modify the comparison in that
