Support CoreUI Development

CoreUI is an MIT-licensed open source project and is completely free to use. However, the amount of effort needed to maintain and develop new features for the project is not sustainable without proper financial backing.

You can support our Open Source software development in the following ways:

  • Buy the CoreUI PRO, and get access to PRO components, and dedicated support.
  • Became a sponsor, and get your logo on BACKERS.md/README.md files or each site of this documentation
  • Give us a star ⭐️ on Github.

Select

Customize the native <select>s with custom CSS that changes the element’s initial appearance.

Default

Custom <select> menus need only a custom class, .form-select to trigger the custom styles. Custom styles are limited to the <select>’s initial appearance and cannot modify the <option>s due to browser limitations.

<select class="form-select" aria-label="Default select example">
  <option selected>Open this select menu</option>
  <option value="1">One</option>
  <option value="2">Two</option>
  <option value="3">Three</option>
</select>

Sizing

You may also choose from small and large custom selects to match our similarly sized text inputs.

<select class="form-select form-select-lg mb-3" aria-label=".form-select-lg example">
  <option selected>Open this select menu</option>
  <option value="1">One</option>
  <option value="2">Two</option>
  <option value="3">Three</option>
</select>

<select class="form-select form-select-sm" aria-label=".form-select-sm example">
  <option selected>Open this select menu</option>
  <option value="1">One</option>
  <option value="2">Two</option>
  <option value="3">Three</option>
</select>

The multiple attribute is also supported:

<select class="form-select" multiple aria-label="multiple select example">
  <option selected>Open this select menu</option>
  <option value="1">One</option>
  <option value="2">Two</option>
  <option value="3">Three</option>
</select>

As is the size attribute:

<select class="form-select" size="3" aria-label="size 3 select example">
  <option selected>Open this select menu</option>
  <option value="1">One</option>
  <option value="2">Two</option>
  <option value="3">Three</option>
</select>

Disabled

Add the disabled boolean attribute on a select to give it a grayed out appearance and remove pointer events.

<select class="form-select" aria-label="Disabled select example" disabled>
  <option selected>Open this select menu</option>
  <option value="1">One</option>
  <option value="2">Two</option>
  <option value="3">Three</option>
</select>
