The Dropdown control allows you to define a list of values and capture a single value that the user has selected.
The Dropdown control consists of a single select dropdown and a label. The label should be used to inform the user of the type of data to select.
Add to the Template
The Dropdown control can be added from the controls toolbar in the Template.
Once you have added the control you must set the label text that will be displayed above the dropdown control.
You can then build up the items to be displayed in your dropdown control.
When the Dropdown control is first added to the form it does not have any items. A blank text box is shown. Enter the text for your first item in this text box.
To create new items simply press your 'Enter' key whilst you have an existing item selected. The new item will be created below the currently selected item.
To delete an item you must delete all text and in the text box and then press your 'Backspace' or 'Delete' key to remove the item.
You can create an unlimited amount of items for your dropdown control.
If you would like the Dropdown control to be a required field, you can check the "Is Required?" checkbox.
Use in the Checklist
The Dropdown control displays in the Checklist as below.
When a Dropdown control is marked as required we will perform validation when the user completes the task. We will not allow the task to be completed until an item has been selected in the dropdown control.
Validation error messages are shown below the dropdown.
If you try to complete a task outside of the checklist (e.g. from the Dashboard) and it fails validation we will notify you of the validation failure via a pop-up message.
