Hello,

I'm trying to dynamically remove an html select option item but I'm unable to get it to remove unless I hardcode the option value. I need to remove the select option based on the value passed to the function below...any ideas on where I've gone wrong?
function loadGallery(albumId, albumTitle){
	$("#selectAlbum option[value='37']").remove(); //hard coding it works
        $("#selectAlbum option[value=' + albumId + ']").remove(); //this doesn't work, but no error

}

I believe you do not need the single quotes
$("#selectAlbum option[value=" + albumId + "]").remove();
