jQuery: Add (all), Remove (All) – operations between two Listboxes

Consider the scenario below:

In case of operations between two list boxes like add, add all, remove, remove all; jQuery is quite amazing with it. With the use of appendTo method, you just need one line for each of the four operations. Checkout the code below:

$(“#btnAdd”).click(function() {
$(“select[id$=’lstAllAgents’] > option:selected”).appendTo(“select[id$=’lstGroupMembers’]”);
$(“li#btnAddAll”).click(function() {
$(“select[id$=’lstAllAgents’] > option”).appendTo(“select[id$=’lstGroupMembers’]”);
$(“li#btnRemove”).click(function() {
$(“select[id$=’lstGroupMembers’] > option:selected”).appendTo(“select[id$=’lstAllAgents’]”);
$(“li#btnRemoveAll”).click(function() {
$(“select[id$=’lstGroupMembers’] > option”).appendTo(“select[id$=’lstAllAgents’]”);

Note: btnAdd,btnAddAll,btnRemove,btnRemoveAll are the button id’s while lstAllAgents & lstGroupMembers are the id’s of the listboxes.

  3. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or
    outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all
    over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being stolen?
    I’d really appreciate it.


  4. I tried your code ! some how i couldn’t able to copy it with correct syntax !

    jQuery(“#ADD”).click(function() {
    jQuery(“select[Select1jQuery=’drop1′] > option:selected”).appendTo(“select[Select2jQuery=’drop2′]”);

    my html code :

    item 1
