<div className="wrapper">
<Ariakit.SelectLabel className="label">
Favorite fruit
<Ariakit.Select className="button" />
<Ariakit.SelectPopover gutter={4} sameWidth className="popover">
<Ariakit.SelectItem className="select-item" value="Apple" />
<Ariakit.SelectItem className="select-item" value="Banana" />
<Ariakit.SelectItem className="select-item" value="Grape" disabled />
<Ariakit.SelectItem className="select-item" value="Orange" />




Styling the active item

When browsing the list with a keyboard (or hovering over items with the mouse when the focusOnHover prop is true), the active item element will have a data-active-item attribute. You can use this attribute to style the active item:

.select-item[data-active-item] {
background-color: hsl(204 100% 40%);
color: white;
