In this jQuery tutorial, we will discuss how to populate dropdown using jQuery from array.  We will see how to populate dropdown using jquery. Here I have a SharePoint web part page and I have added the code inside a script editor web part in SharePoint Online.

Here I have an array which has 3 elements like below:

var allwebsites = new Array (“TSInfo Technologies.com”,”EnjoySharePoint.com”,”SharePointSky.com”);

We will try to bind a drop-down list from this array using jQuery on a button click.

Below is the full code.

<script src=”https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.3.1/jquery.min.js”></script>

<input type=”button” value=”Bind Web Sites” id=”btnBind” />

<select id=”ddlWebSites”></select>

<script language=”javascript” type=”text/javascript”>
$(document).ready(function () {

$(“#btnBind”).click(function () {



function BindWebSites(){
var allwebsites = new Array (“TSInfo Technologies.com”,”EnjoySharePoint.com”,”SharePointSky.com”);

for (i = 0; i < allwebsites.length; i++) {

$(‘#ddlWebSites’).append(‘<option>’ + allwebsites[i] + ‘</option>’)



Here I have called a method knwon as BindWebSites() on the button click using jQuery. Once the user clicks on the button, it will populate dropdown from an array in jQuery. You can see the result like below:
