The fiddle has the addItem commented out - uncommenting it gives some errors due to some closing bracket issues.

Fixing that so it looks like this (see below) yields a result but not sure what I am looking for?
function ($scope) {

    // Item List Arrays
    $scope.items = [];
    $scope.addItem = function () {
            itemtext: $scope.item,
    // cannot get this to work.
     //   $scope.array.forEach(function (items) {
   // $scope.array.push({'item'});

well I want it to work without the button.   A user will type some text in the textbox. each text box will add what the user type in into a select dropdown.

The trigger for this would be ?

You have two text boxes - what condition would signal the user is finished and the data should be added to the drop down?

the bigger picture there is no need the user will move on to another text box that is not associated. More in likely when the user is finished typeing in the textbox that will lead to being done.

Ok, but you have two text boxes? Is that how it is going to be
What if the user clicks out of a box by mistake - value is auto-added
Or if you have two boxes and they enter in the second one first?

Trying to understand why you would want the behaviour to be like that?
