Definition and Usage

The disabled attribute is a boolean attribute.

When present, it specifies that an option should be disabled.

A disabled option is unusable and un-clickable.

The disabled attribute can be set to keep a user from selecting the option until some other condition has been met (like selecting a checkbox, etc.). Then, a JavaScript is required to remove the disabled value, and make the option selectable.


Browser Support

The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the attribute.
