Drop Down

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.

Don’t: Create a Drop Down list with too many options. The user needs to be able to scan and navigate the list easily
