In this post we will see how we can make the selected property to the last option of a select or drop down or combo box. We will use a jquery selector for making the last option as selected.
Consider I have a following select element.
<select name="mySelect" id="mySelect" class="select"> <option>1</option> <option>2</option> <option>3</option> <option>4</option> <option>5</option> </select>
Now by default we need that last option as selected right? To do that we can use the following script.
$("#mySelect option:last").attr("selected", "selected");
Here mySelect is the ID of our element.
