You should use Option object to dynamically edit the combo boxes.

The Option object is created using the word new

myOption= new Option();

the text and the value of the Option object is set just like below

myOption.text="option text here";

myOption.value="option value here";

The option can be inserted into selection defining the option index number. Below the option is inserted at the end of a selection


The option can be deleted just setting the option to null

document.formName.selectName.options[1]=null; --> the second option is deleted.

Take a look at the brief example below to make sure about how the things are going.



Enter the text of the new option here:

Enter the value of the new option here:

This button deletes the selected option or the last option

This button deletes all of the options
