Selection Lists

You can insert a Selection List (either a scrollable list from which the user may select one or many items, or a pull-down list from which the user may select one item) into a form.

Add a Selection List:

  1. Position the cursor where you want the Selection List to be.
  2. Click the SList button on the form palette.
  3. Type a Form Tag to give this field a name. The Form Tag is required and must be unique in the form.
  4. Insert items to select from into the Elements list.
  5. To change the text or default status of an item in the list, highlight that item in the list (so that it is displayed in the Elements field), make the changes, and press Change.
  6. To delete an item from the selection list, highlight the item in the text area and click the Delete button.
  7. To change the order of items in the selection list, highlight the item and click the Up or Down buttons.
  8. In the Selection List Attributes box type the number of lines to be displayed in the Display: # Lines field.
  9. In the Selection List Attributes box choose, by clicking, whether to Allow Multiple Selections. The default is to not allow multiple selections.
  10. Click OK, and the selection list appears where the cursor was positioned.

Every element in a form must have a "Form Tag" to name the field or button. This name identifies the fields that contained each value when the results are sent to the form handler. When a form is submitted, then the information sent to the form handler for a selection list will contain "<Form Tag>=<Selected Item(s)>".
