A Boolean reflecting the disabled HTML attribute, which indicates whether the control is disabled. If it is disabled, it does not accept clicks.

read onlyform:FormElement

An HTMLFormElement referencing the form that this element is associated with. If the element is not associated with of a form element, then it returns null.

read onlylabels:NodeList

A NodeList of label elements associated with the element.


An unsigned long The number of option elements in this select element.


A Boolean reflecting the multiple HTML attribute, which indicates whether multiple items can be selected.


A DOMString reflecting the name HTML attribute, containing the name of this control used by servers and DOM search functions.

read onlyoptions:HTMLOptionsCollection

An HTMLOptionsCollection representing the set of option elements contained by this element.


A Boolean reflecting the required HTML attribute, which indicates whether the user is required to select a value before submitting the form. 2.0


A long reflecting the index of the first selected option element. The value -1 indicates no element is selected.

read onlyselectedOptions:HTMLCollection

An HTMLCollection representing the set of option elements that are selected.


A long reflecting the size HTML attribute, which contains the number of visible items in the control. The default is 1, unless multiple is true, in which case it is 4.

read onlytype:String

A DOMString represeting the form control's type. When multiple is true, it returns "select-multiple"; otherwise, it returns "select-one".

read onlyvalidationMessage:String

A DOMString representing a localized message that describes the validation constraints that the control does not satisfy (if any). This attribute is the empty string if the control is not a candidate for constraint validation (willValidate is false), or it satisfies its constraints.

read onlyvalidity:ValidityState

A ValidityState reflecting the validity state that this control is in.


A DOMString reflecting the value of the form control (the first selected option). Returns the value attribute of the option element or if it is missing, the text attribute.

read onlywillValidate:Bool

add(element:EitherType<OptionElement, OptGroupElement>, ?before:EitherType<Element, Int>):Void

Adds an element to the collection of option elements for this select element.





Checks whether the element has any constraints and whether it satisfies them. If the element fails its constraints, the browser fires a cancelable invalid event at the element (and returns false).


Gets an item from the options collection for this select element. You can also access an item by specifying the index in array-style brackets or parentheses, without calling this method explicitly.


Gets the item in the options collection with the specified name. The name string can match either the id or the name attribute of an option node. You can also access an item by specifying the name in array-style brackets or parentheses, without calling this method explicitly.



Removes the element at the specified index from the options collection for this select element.



Sets the custom validity message for the selection element to the specified message. Use the empty string to indicate that the element does not have a custom validity error.
