Chris, the selector is valid, I have an input with a class="previous" within a form container id="paging" Colin, after the select option list is dynamically constructed I set the first item in the list like this: pagePageSelector.options.selectedIndex = (currentpage - 1); I've stepped through the code at this point and there is no issue here, currentpage has value and -1 this value is 0 or greater.
After additional study I have learned that there was conflicting events on document:load that meant certain assigned event handler bindings invalid. I have moved these binding scripts into later event handled scripts. Thanks for the help. Issue solved.
