 var funcName = htmlb_formid+"_getHtmlbElementId";
func = window[funcName];
var dropdown = eval(func("myDdBox1"));
//you need to provide the index
dropdown.setSelectedIndex("1");
//or you can set the value
dropdown.setValue("elephant");

Then you don't need to javascript. You have to handle everything via server side. Set the selection in your "onProcess" event.
