In a Drop Down menu element, the user chooses from a list of items that appears after clicking the drop arrow. Only one can be selected.
|Field Name||This is the name used to reference the field and is also the name of the column heading in the submission bin.|
|Style||Select one of the predefined style options. Note: Styles only apply when the use Basic property is set to false.|
|Basic Mode||The native browser selection elements lack the styling enhancements of the logiforms selection elements, but in some cases you may find it more practical to use the native select element. Set this to true to use the default, native browser select element. If you are unsure, leave the default setting (false).
Performance Tip: We recommend setting this property to TRUE to improve performance on forms that contain more than 20-30 of this field type. This can improve performance.
|MultiSelect||Select true if you want to allow the user to choose more than one item from the drop list.|
|List Height||Specify the height of the drop-list. You may, for example, want to shorten the height for drop-down menus that you place near the bottom of the form.|
|Field Values||Click the button to display the Field Values window, in which you can add one or more Data Values. A Data Value is a unique internal name for an item in a form. In the Display Value column, you can enter a user-friendly label for each item. Learn more about the Bind Value in Bindings.
|Dynamic Data||Click the button to configure data lookups. Dynamic data uses a database/table to lookup the data to populate this element. Learn more in Dynamic Data.|
|Tooltip||Enter a short help comment to display nearby when the user hovers over the element.|
|Caption||Enter the caption text, which appears either beside or above the element.|
|Multi-line Caption||When the caption wraps, you may notice the line height is wrong. This is when you need to enable the multi-line feature by setting this property to true. Note: Keep in mind that you can increase the caption width so that the caption text does not wrap.|
|Admin Caption||This is the caption to use when viewing data via the submission bin record detail window. When left blank, the original caption is used instead.|
