A common trick I use with drop downs for forms is to add an non selectable item to label groups in the drop down or just to act like a place holder for the drop down like so:

Code: Select all
<option value="-1" selected="" disabled="" hidden="">Select Make</option>

It would be great if there was a way to add disabled and hidden, or to have the "-" value for drop downs be able to add these. I would think maybe a simple code since groups markers I leave disabled, while the "Please Select" starter I leave hidden so it only shows at the start.
