How to add a placeholder to select tag in Angular

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to set a placeholder text to a <select> (tag) in Angular.

Some of the Html form elements for example input, textarea we have a built-in placeholder attribute to add the placeholder text.

<input placeholder="Name"/>
<textarea placeholder="comment"></textarea>

But for the select tag, we can’t use the html placeholder attribute instead of we can do it like this.

Adding a placeholder to select tag

To add a placeholder to a select tag, we can use the <option> element followed by the disabled, selected, and hidden attribute.

Here is an example, that adds the placeholder “Choose your color” to the select tag:

<select [(ngModel)]="name">
  <option value="" disabled selected hidden>Choose your color</option>  <option value="red">Red</option>
  <option value="green">Green</option>
  <option value="black">Black</option>
</select>
  1. The disabled attribute makes the option unable to select.
  2. The selected attribute shows the text inside <option> element opening and closing tags.
  3. Whenever a user clicks on a select dropdown the hidden attribute makes this option hidden.
