Hello Experts,

I have a simple select

<select id='myselect'>
<option...>
<option...>
</select>

To remove all the options I am calling:
$('#myselect').empty();

on the onChange. However, this is only removing the values and not the options themselves.
ie If I originally had 10 options appear in the drop down and then call this function, I still have 10 options - but they are all blank.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!
