The select element represents a control for selecting amongst a set of options.

The select menu is based on a native select element, which is hidden from view and replaced with a custom-styled select button that matches the look and feel of the jQuery Mobile framework. The select menu is ARIA-enabled and keyboard accessible on the desktop as well.

By default, the framework leverages the native OS options menu to use with the custom button. When the button is clicked, the native OS menu will open. When a value is selected and the menu closes, the custom button’s text is updated to match the selected value. Please note that the framework also offers the possibility of having custom (non-native) select menus.



Label text. Possible to enter static text and translate to different languages if needed. Use the translate button to translate to desired language. The label can also be binded to an public attribute from the Application Class.


Direct binding of the value entered to the Application Class. No more need for extra coding, the data is passed to the Application Class in the OnSubmit event, to the binded source.


Binds value for attributes to the object. All valid attributes can be binded.

Format from Application Class:

Binds value for styles to the object. All valid styles can be binded.
