Determine if a value is an option in a select element with jQuery

Posted on 9 November, 2012  in JavaScript, Programming

To determine if an html select box contains a given value as an option, in jQuery you can try to select the option and see if it exists:

if($("#id option[value='someval']").length != 0)
   // it exists!

That’s it! Have fun!
