How to disable buttons when nothing is selected in the list boxes

I'm new to jquery & I tried some codes to disable the buttons. But, Its not working for me.
I want to enable the "Add category" button only if any three values(one value per each box) are selected from the above three boxes and I want to enable the "Remove Category" & "Save Categories" button only if there is any values in the fourth box.

var one = $('.select-manage-category').val();
var two = $('.select-manage-category1').val();
var three = $('.select-manage-category2').val();
$('#add-category').click(function() {
  $(
    '.select-manage-category, .select-manage-category1, .select-manage-category2'
  ).each(function() {
    $('#selected-lst-values').append('<option value="' + $(this).val() + '">' + $(this).val() + '</option>');
  });
});
$('#remove-category').click(function() {// check change here
  var select = document.getElementById('selected-lst-values');
  
    for(var i=0;i<3;i++){
      select.removeChild(select.lastChild);
    }
});
$('#selected-lst-values>option').on("change",function(){
		if($(this).val()===''){
		$('#mnage-category-savebtn').attr({disabled:disabled});
		
	}
	else{
		$('#mnage-category-savebtn').removeAttr('disabled');
	}
	})
.select-manage-category,
.select-manage-category1,
.select-manage-category2 {
  width: 100px;
  float: left;
  margin-right: 4px;
}

p {
  clear: left;
  text-align: center;
}

#selected-lst-values {
  width: 100%;
}

  • You need to add change event to all three select-manage-category list and your selected-lst-values list as shown in the snippet!

    Hope that answers your question!

    var one = $('.select-manage-category').val();
    var two = $('.select-manage-category1').val();
    var three = $('.select-manage-category2').val();
    
    
    $('.select-manage-category, .select-manage-category1, .select-manage-category2').change(function() {
      var one = $('.select-manage-category').val();
      var two = $('.select-manage-category1').val();
      var three = $('.select-manage-category2').val();
      if (one && two && three) {
        $("#add-category").prop("disabled", false);
      } else {
        $("#add-category").prop("disabled", true);
      }
    
    });
    
    $('#selected-lst-values').change(function() {
      if ($(this).val()) {
        $('#remove-category').prop("disabled", false);
        $('#save-categories').prop("disabled", false);
      } else {
        $('#remove-category').prop("disabled", true);
        $('#save-categories').prop("disabled", true);
      }
    });
    
    $('#add-category').click(function() {
      $(
        '.select-manage-category, .select-manage-category1, .select-manage-category2'
      ).each(function() {
        $('#selected-lst-values').append('<option value="' + $(this).val() + '">' + $(this).val() + '</option>');
      });
    });
    $('#remove-category').click(function() { // check change here
      var select = document.getElementById('selected-lst-values');
    
      for (var i = 0; i < 3; i++) {
        select.removeChild(select.lastChild);
      }
        if ($('#selected-lst-values').val()) {
        $('#remove-category').prop("disabled", false);
        $('#save-categories').prop("disabled", false);
      } else {
        $('#remove-category').prop("disabled", true);
        $('#save-categories').prop("disabled", true);
      }
    
    
    
    });
    $('#selected-lst-values>option').on("change", function() {
      if ($(this).val() === '') {
        $('#mnage-category-savebtn').attr({
          disabled: disabled
        });
    
      } else {
        $('#mnage-category-savebtn').removeAttr('disabled');
