I want to be able to loop thru my dropdown list and send all values as a list.


<select name="SelectDepartmentImpacted" class="SearchBySelect5" id="SelectDepartmentImpacted" style="width: 250px; height: 100px; background-color: rgb(248, 250, 252);" size="180" multiple="" sizzle-1400165879525="[object Object]">

<OPTION value=4 data-DepartmentName="BCN – Commons Customer Service">BCN – Commons Customer Service</OPTION>
<OPTION value=3 data-DepartmentName="BCN">BCN</OPTION>
<OPTION value=7 data-DepartmentName="Customer Service">Customer Service</OPTION>

		function ResetDepartment ()
		var ResetDept = 'Clear Department';
		var dropdown = $("#DispDepartmentBox");	
		var SelDept = $("#SelectDepartmentImpacted option");
		var listDept = "";
	$.each(SelDept, function(index, value) {
		if ($('#SelDept').length > 0) 
			//I want to have a list of all my value so I can send it to the URL
			listDept = ? //I want all the list value from the dropdown list like this listDept = (4,3,2,5)
		$.get( "getDepartmentName.cfm?listDept=" + encodeURIComponent(listDept) + "filter=" + encodeURIComponent(ResetDept), function (data) {
			dropdown.html( data );
