I think AgentM is right. I went to test this code:

use strict; use CGI qw(:standard); my $html .= popup_menu( -name=>'col_id', -values=>[1,2], -default=>2, -labels=>{1=>'Ali',2=>'Baba'}, ); print $html;

And here is the output I got:

<SELECT NAME="col_id"> <OPTION VALUE="1">Ali <OPTION SELECTED VALUE="2">Baba </SELECT>
I assume this is what you wanted so the error may not be in the bit of code you provided.

[hippo]: Make it an option?
[Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
[Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
[Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
