Move list box items from one box to another javascript

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I've found this followig javascript code that allows me to move listbox items to one another listbox.

The code works as he is on a submission form. But now I would like te reference my database listbox instead of the exemple.

Can someone help me?


The name of my "from" listbox is ID_SEARCH_FORM and the "to" listbox is cbParamVirtual1.

<style type="text/css">
    select {
        width: 200px;
        float: left;
    .controls {
        width: 40px;
        float: left;
        margin: 10px;
    .controls a {
        background-color: #222222;
        border-radius: 4px;
        border: 2px solid #000;
        color: #ffffff;
        padding: 2px;
        font-size: 14px;
        text-decoration: none;
        display: inline-block;
        text-align: center;
        margin: 5px;
        width: 20px;
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js">

    function moveAll(from, to) {
        $('#'+from+' option').remove().appendTo('#'+to); 
    function moveSelected(from, to) {
        $('#'+from+' option:selected').remove().appendTo('#'+to); 
    function selectAll() {
        $("select option").attr("selected","selected");

<form name="selection" method="post" onSubmit="return selectAll()"> 
    <select multiple size="10" id="from">
      <option value="html">Html</option>
      <option value="css">Css</option>
      <option value="google">Google</option>
      <option value="javascript">Javascript</option>
      <option value="jquery">Jquery</option>
      <option value="regex">Regex</option>
      <option value="php">Php</option>
      <option value="mysql">Mysql</option>
      <option value="xml">Xml</option>
      <option value="json">Json</option>
    <div class="controls"> 
        <a href="javascript:moveAll('from', 'to')">&gt;&gt;</a> 
        <a href="javascript:moveSelected('from', 'to')">&gt;</a> 
        <a href="javascript:moveSelected('to', 'from')">&lt;</a> 
        <a href="javascript:moveAll('to', 'from')" href="#">&lt;&lt;</a> </div>
    <select multiple id="to" size="10" name="topics[]"></select>
