leakim971,

the append works but I don't need two companytext at the end
I just need the value and the data-companyname

so,

value = companyname ; companytext
data-companyname= companytext

 $('#DispSelectedGroupBox').append('<option value="' + companyname + '";"' + companytext + '" data-companyname="' + companytext + '">' + companytext + '</option>');

I need to take out this extra companytext at the end.

 $('#DispSelectedGroupBox').append('<option value="' + companyname + '";"' + companytext + '">' + companytext + '</option>');

Please write the option yoiu want without the code

The following is valid but don't display anything in the option text :
$('#DispSelectedGroupBox').append('<option value="' + companyname + ';' + companytext + '" data-companyname="' + companytext + '">' + '</option>');

Open in new window


With the option text :
$('#DispSelectedGroupBox').append('<option value="' + companyname + ';' + companytext + '" data-companyname="' + companytext + '">' + companytext + '</option>');

Open in new window


Good too:
$('#DispSelectedGroupBox').append('<option value="' + companyname + '" data-companyname="' + companytext + '">' + '</option>');

Open in new window

and :
$('#DispSelectedGroupBox').append('<option value="' + companyname + '" data-companyname="' + companytext + '">'  + companytext + '</option>');

Open in new window
