How do I delete an option from a html select element? I would like to do somehing like this:

Check this : http://jsfiddle.net/jYcMA/1/

var idparam = "idvalue";

var selectElement= document.getElementById(idparam);
selectElement.options[5].remove(); // remove the 6th option : <option value="5">5</option>

var valueToRemove = 2;
$('#' + idparam + ' option[value=' + valueToRemove + ']').remove(); // remove option having value 2

Open in new window

In Javscript:
var x = document.getElementById("idparam");
x.remove(x.selectedIndex);
where the selected index is the number (0-N) of the option to be removed.

Thanks. Seems like selectElement.options[5].remove(); does not work with IE. x.remove(x.selectedIndex); seems to work better.
