Supported Attributes #

React supports all data-* and aria-* attributes as well as every attribute in the following lists.


All attributes are camel-cased and the attributes class and for are className and htmlFor, respectively, to match the DOM API specification.

For a list of events, see Supported Events.

HTML Attributes #

These standard attributes are supported:

accept acceptCharset accessKey action allowFullScreen allowTransparency alt
async autoComplete autoFocus autoPlay capture cellPadding cellSpacing challenge
charSet checked classID className colSpan cols content contentEditable
contextMenu controls coords crossOrigin data dateTime default defer dir

summary tabIndex target title type useMap value width wmode wrap

These RDFa attributes are supported (several RDFa attributes overlap with standard HTML attributes and thus are excluded from this list):

about datatype inlist prefix property resource typeof vocab

In addition, the following non-standard attributes are supported:

  • autoCapitalize autoCorrect for Mobile Safari.
  • color for <link rel="mask-icon" /> in Safari.
  • itemProp itemScope itemType itemRef itemID for HTML5 microdata.
  • security for older versions of Internet Explorer.
  • unselectable for Internet Explorer.
  • results autoSave for WebKit/Blink input fields of type search.

There is also the React-specific attribute dangerouslySetInnerHTML (more here), used for directly inserting HTML strings into a component.
