HTML Optgroup Tutorial
Browser SupportAn option group is used to group related items together under one bold label in a selection list.
Take a look at the following demonstration and it will be clear:
Where the list shows "Great Bands" and "Great Bandages" is the start of an optgroup. Here's the code for that list:
<select> <optgroup label="Great Bands"> <option value="Led Zeppelin">Led Zeppelin</option> <option value="Steppenwolf">Steppenwolf</option> </optgroup> <optgroup label="Great Bandages"> <option value="Band-Aid">Band-Aid</option> <option value="Curad">Curad</option> </optgroup> </select>
The value entered in the label attribute is text that is bolded in the selection list. This forms the start of an optgroup in your list. An optgroup cannot be selected by the user, only the options listed in an optgroup can be selected.
