trinkel created the topic: Separator in Select Menu

Is there a proper (or more proper) way of adding a separator to a select menu list in BreezingForms? Right now I'm using:
And then validating with valueNotNone. However, the user can still select it. The validation catches it, but it would be nice to avoid the situation entirely.

Is there a way to have a none selectable separator in a select menu list?

In my opinion, the best way to have a none selectable separator in a select menu list is to leave the "0;
;" option, but to write a piece of code that will disable that option so that it can't be selected.

Here are instructions on how to do so.

Please go to Advanced properties of the select list element. Scroll down and in Initscript section set Custom as Type. Furthermore, check the Form Entry checkbox. In the code below put the following code:
function ff_name_init(element, condition)
    switch (condition) {
        case 'formentry':
jQuery('[name="ff_nm_name[]"] option:eq(3) ').prop('disabled', 'disabled');
    } // switch
} // ff_name_init
NOTE: In the code above you have to replace all 3 instances of name with the Name of your select list element.

This is an example that will disable the 4th option in the select list element. If you wish to disable let's say 7th option, you have to use

Let me know whether you have managed to apply this to your form and whether it works as you wanted.
