select and disable for dropdown

Recommended Posts


I need a multiple selection of drop down list  with select and disabled option for 3 elements.

Because 3 elements should be default selected and user should not able to deselect it.

<form action="/action_page.php" method="post" onclick="validate()"> 
            <select multiple="multiple" id="variable" name="variable"> 
                <option value="0" selected disabled>class1</option> 
                <option value="1" selected disabled>class2</option> 
                <option value="2" selected disabled>class3</option> 
                <option value="3">class4</option> 
                <option value="4">class5</option> 
                <option value="5">class6</option> 
                <option value="6">class7</option> 
            <input type="submit" value = "Submit">
        function validate()
            var selectpro = document.getElementById('variable');
            var promaxOptions = 5;
            var proCount = 0;
            for (var i = 0; i < selectpro.length; i++) {
                if (selectpro[i].selected) {
                    if (proCount > promaxOptions) {
                        alert("Already 5 variables selected")
                        return false;
            return true;

When submit button is pressed , class1, class2 and class3 should be submitted along with other class elements.

How to work on this

Please provide  the suggestions


Thanks and Regards
