Multiple selection

The select element represents a control that allows the user to choose from a number of options. The multiple selection element is represented visually by a scrolling box .


  • Always associate a label to every select element for good accessibility. Do not include a colon at the end of the label.
  • The advantage of having a multiple selection list over a checkbox list, it’s that it can have a fixed height and be scrollable natively.
  • The multiple select element requires the user to hold down the Ctrl (Cmd) key in order to make more than one selection.
