So i have a very little challenge. In the Database, i'm retrieving a a value for each user(Note: the values are not the same). For example, user A might have value 2, while User B might have user 3. What i want to do is create a dropdown control with select values corresponding to the value of each user. So if user B logs in, three dropdown will be displayed while if its user A, two dropdown will be displayed. I want to create this dropdown dynamically. Ho do i achieve this using Jquery ?

What I have tried:

What i have done is to write the query to fetch the number for each user. What is left is to be able to display number of dropdown depending on the value of each user

3 dropdown controls or a single dropdown with different options?

The number of dropdowns is dependent on the value assigned to each user in the database

and the values to each dropdown?

i will bind them with values from database. i think i can find a way round binding values to the dropdown once i can create the dropdown control dynamically.

Google "create dropdown jquery"

1 solution

The first google result has a good example. See How to create dropdown list dynamically using jQuery? - Stack Overflow[^]

var data = {
    'foo': 'bar',
    'foo2': 'baz'

var s = $('<select />');

for(var val in data) {
    $('<option />', {value: val, text: data[val]}).appendTo(s);

s.appendTo('body'); // or wherever it should be

In this case, data may be coming from a webservice call using jQuery's .ajax() method.
