HTML <select> Tag with the 'disabled' Attribute

<form id="myForm" action="">	
<input name="someText">
<select name="Food" disabled>
<option value ="apples">Apples</option>
<option value ="bananas">Bananas</option>
<option value ="oranges">Oranges</option>


The above example demonstrates usage of the <select> element with the disabled attribute.

The disabled attribute disables the <select> control. The control won't accept changes from the user. Also, this <select> element cannot receive focus and it will be skipped when tabbing.

Boolean Attribute

The disabled attribute is a boolean attribute. If the attribute is present, its value must either be the empty string or a value that is an ASCII case-insensitive match for the attribute's canonical name, with no leading or trailing whitespace (i.e. either disabled or disabled="disabled").

Possible values:

  • [Empty string]
  • disabled
