[comment memo="Drop Down (Select) Boxes" memo_size="large" memo_style="bold"] The Select Tag displays a drop down box where only one item can be selected. The only required parameter is value. The optional parameters are name and memo.
Note for examples below: To switch views between the Active Form and Markup Code, click on "View" in the upper right of this page. Then choose "Form" to see the Active Form or choose "Markup" to reveal the Markup Code.
Example 1: [select value="choice A|choice B|choice C"]
Also, numeric values (for calculations) can be set by using the 'equals sign' in the name parameter. This comes in handy with calculations (later in this tutorial). Example 2: [select name="letters" value="choice A=1|choice B=2|choice C=3"]
