I have an old javascript script with a list of an array, and then this script to put the array into the specific select

   for(ctr=0;ctr<Array_Models[num].length;ctr++)
   {
      document.form1.ccf_state.options[ctr]=new Option(Array_Models[num][ctr],Array_Models[num][ctr]);
   }
   

   //Set the length of the select list
   document.form1.ccf_state.length=Array_Models[num].length;

Open in new window


Now I need to switch it over to jquery. I have 2 select boxes on the page that need to be changed and I need to do an each function.
How would I switch the above array to work with this new jquery?

$.each(selectValues, function(key, value) {   
     $('#mySelect')
         .append($("<option></option>")
         .attr("value",key)
         .text(value)); 
});

Hi,
according to your original script, it seems that the value and the text are always the same.

Therefore the following should work:
var selectValues = Array_Models[num];
$.each(selectValues, function( index, value ) {
  $('#mySelect')
         .append($("<option></option>")
         .attr("value",value)
         .text(value)); 
});
