Browser Support

The disabled attribute is supported in all major browsers.

Note: The disabled attribute of the <option> tag is not supported in Internet Explorer 7 and earlier versions.


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.

NONE.


Differences Between HTML and XHTML

In XHTML, attribute minimization is forbidden, and the disabled attribute must be defined as <option disabled="disabled">.
