Chapter 10. Forms > Creating List Box Fields

Creating List Box Fields

A list box displays a drop-down list of items for the user to choose from. The user can pick one or multiple items. If there are more items in the list than can fit in the box, scroll bars let the user scroll through all the items in the list.

To create a list box field

1.
Choose the List Box tool from the Forms toolbar (Figure 10.27).

Figure 10.27. Choose the List Box tool from the Forms toolbar.


2.
Drag to draw the field on the page.

The List Box Properties dialog box appears.

The List Box Properties dialog box features five tabs: General, Appearance, Options, Actions, and Selection Change.

3.
Choose the General tab and name the field, and (if you like) type a brief description in the Tooltip text box. Choose settings from the Common Properties area as you did in previous tasks.

4.
Set items in the General, Appearance, Options, and Actions panes as in previous tasks.

5.
On the Selection Change tab, specify what you want to have happen when the list box selection changes (Figure 10.28). Choose either Do Nothing or Execute This Script. To execute a script, you'll have to create a JavaScript.

Figure 10.28. The Selection Change tab lets you specify what will happen when the user selects an item in the list box.


6.
Click Close.

7.
Change to the Hand tool to display the check box.
