Hi,

I want to create a select with multiple options using jquery.

<table id="tblForm"></table>

I want to append dropdown list to this table.

<Select id="dynSelect">
 <option value="choice1">Choice1</option>
<option value="choice2">Choice2</option>
<option value="choice3">Choice3</option>
<option value="choice4">Choice4</option>
<option value="choice5">Choice5</option>
</Select>

Thanks for the help.
