When activated, Drop Down Menus allow users to select a value from a list of values. Once a value is selected, the Drop Down displays the selected value.
Rules of Thumb
- Drop Downs should display a list of multiple values.
- Drop Downs may default to a state that instructs users what to do. For example: “Select Modem” or, a default choice like “Modem X.”
- When user knows what they’re looking for in advance, consider using a text field with client-side auto-complete functionality instead.
