Possible using Javascript window.onload = () => { let dataList = document.querySelector( "#colors" ); let optionValues = [ "Orange", "Cyan", "Magenta", "Yellow", "Black" ]; // add each element of <optionValues> array for( let optionValue of optionValues ) { let newOption = document.createElement( "option" ); newOption.value = optionValue; dataList.appendChild(newOption); } }


Hey Ipang and I suppouse that source can be a remote call from an API using fetch Great!!!


Yes David Ordás I guess it is a viable option, but TBH I haven't studied fetch yet. Look forward for someone's code example. Most welcome 👌
