jQuery Get Selected Option From Dropdown

0 votes
Usually I use $("#id").val() to return the value of the selected option, but this time it doesn't work. The selected tag has the id aioConceptName

For dropdown options you probably want something like this:

var conceptName = $('#aioConceptName').find(":selected").text();

The reason val() doesn't do the trick is because clicking an option doesn't change the value of the dropdown--it just adds the :selected property to the selected option which is a child of the dropdown.
