Setting Style/CSS of select options using jQuery

This is how i set style (color here) of all of the options of a select list using jQuery.

In my case i had select options like this:

<select id=”select_list_id”>
<option value=”#595959″>Grey</option>
<option value=”#000000″>Black</option>
<option value=”#036″>Blue</option>
<option value=”#363″>Green</option>
<option value=”#632423″>Red</option>
<option value=”#403152″>Purple</option>
<option value=”#E36C0A”>Orange</option>
</select>

Follwoing the jQuery code i used to set color of options above:

  $(document).ready(function(){
	$('#select_list_id option', this).each(	
		function ()	{
			$(this).css({'color':$(this).val()});
		}
	)
  });
