The :indeterminate selector in CSS is used to select any form elements that are in indeterminate state i.e a state that is neither checked nor unchecked. Elements targeted by this selector are:

  • <input = “checkbox”> elements whose indeterminate property is set to true by JavaScript
  • <input = “radio”> elements, when all radio buttons with the same name value in the form are unchecked
  • <progress> elements in an indeterminate state

Example-1: 

html




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
    <title>
        CSS :indeterminate selector
    </title>
    <style>
        input:indeterminate + label {
            background: green;
            color: white;
            padding: 4px;
        }
         
        input:indeterminate {
            box-shadow: 0 0 1px 1px green;
        }
    </style>
</head>
 
<body style="text-align: center;">
    <h1 style="color:green;">

    <h2>

    <br>
    <div>
        <input type="radio" id="radio" name="abc">
        <label for="radio">This is an indeterminate radio button.</label>
    </div>
 
    <script>
        var doc = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
 
        for (var i = 0; i < doc.length; i++) {
