How do I clear the dropdownlist values on button click event using jQuery?

Answer Source

A shorter alternative to the first solution given by Russ Cam would be:

$('#mySelect').val('');

This assumes you want to retain the list, but make it so that no option is selected.

If you wish to select a particular default value, just pass that value instead of an empty string.

$('#mySelect').val('someDefaultValue');

or to do it by the index of the option, you could do:

$('#mySelect option:eq(0)').attr('selected','selected'); // Select first option
