HTML <select> size Attribute

HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The size attribute of the <select> element is used to set the number of visible list items from a drop-down list. A scrollbar would get added if the size is set more than 1.

Following is the syntax−

<select size="num">

Above, num is the count of the visible list items in the drop-down list.

Let us now see an example to implement the size attribute of the <select> element−
