jQuery Mobile Form Select Menus


jQuery Mobile Select Menus

Select Menu on an Iphone:
Select Menu on an Android/SGS4 device:

The <select> element creates a drop-down list with several options.

The <option> elements inside the <select> element define the available options in the list:

Example

<form method="post" action="demoform.asp">
  <fieldset class="ui-field-contain">
    <label for="day">Select Day</label>
    <select name="day" id="day">
      <option value="mon">Monday</option>
      <option value="tue">Tuesday</option>
      <option value="wed">Wednesday</option>
    </select>
  </fieldset>
</form>

Tip: If you have a long list of options that are related, use the <optgroup> element inside <select>:

Example

<select name="day" id="day">
  <optgroup label="Weekdays">
    <option value="mon">Monday</option>
    <option value="tue">Tuesday</option>
    <option value="wed">Wednesday</option>
  </optgroup>
  <optgroup label="Weekends">
    <option value="sat">Saturday</option>
    <option value="sun">Sunday</option>
  </optgroup>
</select>

If you want the select menu to display the same on all mobile devices, use jQuery's own custom select menu, the data-native-menu="false" attribute:

Example

<select name="day" id="day" data-native-menu="false">

To select multiple options in the select menu, use the multiple attribute in the <select> element:

Example

<select name="day" id="day" multiple data-native-menu="false">
