Manage keyboard accessibility for a group of controls.

  • Supports selecting controls from a nested hierarchy of elements
  • Enables using HOME, END, and the ARROW keys to navigate between controls in the group
  • Automatically ignores disabled and hidden elements
  • Provides easy access to the current selected element
  • Supports WAI-ARIA authoring practices for a11y


$ bower install -S arsnebula/nebula-select

Getting Started

Import the element.

<link rel="import" href="/bower_components/nebula-select/nebula-select.html">

Add the element.

<nebula-select selector='a' selected="{{selected}}" on-selected-changed="_onSelectedChanged" role="toolbar">
  <a href="#">Link 1</a>
  <a href="#">Link 2</a>
  <a href="#">Link 3</a>

Style the selected element using the selected attribute. The default attribute is selected, but you can customize the attribute name used by setting the selectedAttribute property.

nebula-select a[selected] {
  background-color: dimgrey;
  color: white;
