I have a
select field with some options in it. Now I need to select one of those
options with jQuery. But how can I do that when I only know the
value of the
option that must be selected?
I have the following HTML:
<div class="id_100"> <select> <option value="val1">Val 1</option> <option value="val2">Val 2</option> <option value="val3">Val 3</option> </select> </div>
I need to select the option with value
val2. How can this be done?
