Placing a "Drop-down" field on an app form creates a field that allows users to select a single option from a predefined list.
"Drop-down" fields are displayed closed on the "New Record" or "Edit Record" screen. When a "Drop-down" field is clicked, a list of options is displayed and only one can be selected.
Only the options that have been selected are displayed on the "Record Details" screen.
Specify the field name. The field name is displayed as the label of the field in the app.
Hide field name
Select this option to hide the field name on the following screens.
- The "New Record" screen
- The "Edit Record" screen
- The "Record Details" screen
- The screen for printing a record
- The Form settings screen
Select this option to make choosing a field value mandatory.
Enter the field options. You can add up to 1,000 options, with up to 128 half-width or full-width characters for each option.
Add an option by clicking the plus sign-shaped Add icon to the right of an option input field, or by pressing the Enter key when the last option input field listed is selected.
Remove an option by clicking the minus sign-shaped Delete icon to the right of the option input field.
Change the order of an option by dragging and dropping the arrow icon to the left of the option input field.
Specify an option to be selected by default.
This is the code used for specifying the field in formulas or APIs.
Use "Drop-down" fields when you want to make it possible to select only one option from a list.
"Drop-down" fields are displayed closed on the "New Record" or "Edit Record" screen. For this reason, you may want to use one when there are too many options and a "Radio button" field would take up too much space.
"Drop-down" fields can also be used for the following purposes.
- Selecting a single product in an app for price quotes
- Selecting a single customer category in a customer management app
- Selecting a single response status in an inquiry management app
