<optgroup> Grouping of options of listbox

When we have more options in a listbox, we need to group them under different heads. We can use optgroup to manage such group of options.

Here there are three optgroups Books, Publications and Articles.
<select id=material name=material class='form-control'>
  <optgroup label="Books">
        <option value=b1>Book 1</option>
        <option value=b2>Book 2</option>
        <option value=b3>Book 3</option>
  </optgroup>
<optgroup label="Publications">
        <option value=pb1>Publications 1</option>
        <option value=pb2>Publications 2</option>
        <option value=pb3>Publications 3</option>
</optgroup>
<optgroup label="Articles">
        <option value=a1>Articles 1</option>
        <option value=a2>Articles 2</option>
        <option value=a3>Articles 3</option>
</optgroup>

</select>

Attributes of <optgroup>

disabled: All options of the group will be disabled if it is set.
Label : Lable to be used for the group of options.

  </optgroup>
