ddl = document.getElementById("ID of element goes here");
ddl.value = 2; // 2 being the value I want to set it to.
However, I need to do this with jQuery, because I'm using a CSS class for my selector (stupid ASP.NET client ids...).
Here are a few things I've tried:
$("._statusDDL").val(2); // Doesn't find 2 as a value.
$("._statusDDL").children("option").val(2) // Also failed.
How can I do it with jQuery?
So as it turns out, I had it right the first time with:
When I put an alert just above it it works fine, but when I remove the alert and let it run at full speed, I get the error
Could not set the selected property. Invalid Index
I'm not sure if it's a bug with jQuery or Internet Explorer 6 (I'm guessing Internet Explorer 6), but it's terribly annoying.
