Disable option in dropdown



Hi! I have a submission form that contains a dropdown field. In this dropdown field, I have included a dummy option or maybe a placeholder(?)  The options are:

  • Choose one
  • True
  • False

Since "choose one" option is just a dummy option, I want my users to not be able to choose it. Is there any way I can disable it? I believe this can't be done using standard feature. Any help will be gladly appreciated. :)

Hi @imJihyo,

Yes, unfortunately, this can't be done through standard features as we cannot edit the HTML tag of the options through DataPage Settings. We may use JavaScript for this one, though.

Please change the id 'InsertRecordTitle' to your proper field ID




document.addEventListener('DataPageReady', function (event) {

document.getElementById('InsertRecordTitle').options[0].disabled = true;



This basically takes the first option 'options[0]'  and disables it 'disabled=true' so it cannot be selected.


Here's a demo if you want to see
