Output

In the above example, we have two drop-down lists under different sections −

<section>
<h3>Graduation</h3>
<select autofocus>
   <option value="bca">BCA</option>
   <option value="bcom">B.COM</option>
   <option value="btech">B.TECH</option>
</select>
</section>
<section>
<h3>Postgraduation</h3>
<select>
   <option value="mca">MCA</option>
   <option value="mcom">M.COM</option>
   <option value="mtech">M.TECH</option>
   <option value="msc">M.Sc</option>
</select>
</section>

On page loads, we are setting autofocus for one of the drop-down list using the autofocus attribute as shown below −

<select autofocus>
   <option value="bca">BCA</option>
   <option value="bcom">B.COM</option>
   <option value="btech">B.TECH</option>
</select>
