I'm trying to delete all element of <select></select>.
All element will be dynamically generated with document.createElement('option'); triggered by my php script.

It actually deletes the element(s), but not everything and not same reuslt everytime.
I just need delete all elements.
Please someone advise.
Thank you.
var delSel = document.getElementById('tlist');
  if (delSel.length > 0)
  {
	for (var i=0; i <= delSel.length; i++)
	{
		delSel.remove(delSel[i]);
	}
  }

var List = sourceListBox.options.length;
 selectedIndex=null;      
 
      if (sourceListBox != null)
      {
        for (var i=List-1; i >=0; i--)
        {
         
               sourceListBox.remove(sourceListBox.options[i].Index);
           
        }
