Thanks for the suggestion, I added the 'value district/district_code' now only. 'selected' is working fine . if i remove the 'value' thing its working fine.
i also tried this ; option tal:attributes="selected python:test(distname==district.district_name, 'selected',''); value district/district_code" tal:content="district/district_name"> </option> as for the 'distname' test value() the def is: <body tal:define="distname request/form/districtname|nothing; So guess since value tag is not set so 'distname' is not being set. the select tag is : <select name="districtname" onchange="reloadPage()"> plz suggest.
