#9231 closed bug (cantfix)

Multiple selected options in IE6 are not working

When creating <select> with multiple="multiple" and several <option> tags, some of them with selected="selected", in IE6 after adding the created element into DOM, only the last selected option is actually selected. I'm not sure, if it's just IE6 DOM problem, or it could be solved using some workaround in jQuery. It might be also related to this issue http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/6159

It should at least work, when using this in IE6: selectElement.val(arrayWithValues);

This isn't a problem with attr or val, but being able to set multiple in IE6, which has been a problem for all versions of jQuery. http://jsfiddle.net/timmywil/jPKQz/9/

Actually setting multiple using .attr("multiple", true) works for me in IE6 in some very specific scenarios, I should try to isolate the example from my code, where it's working. Maybe it could help implement proper setting of this attribute in jQuery.
