Hi

My requirement is this that i have to iterate over the values which are comma separated and put them in a array so that i can iterate over them
again to put them in a dropdwon box.

Detailed:

I have a javascript function in which i gettting a var with values separated by ","(comma)

for e.g var data = TA,FA,SA,BA,SA;

Now i want to separate these values and store them in a javascript array(i.e dataArray) so that i can iterate those and put in dropdwon box using some thing like below.


where drpDwn is my var drpDwn = document.getElementById("id of the dropdown");

here is my addOption function.



so basically i need to know the way of separating the data and storeing them in the javascript array.

Hey,

There is a js function [ib]split()[/b] function which will do this.
See http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/jsref_split.asp
