Programming Selection Lists

Selection lists are common sights in HTML forms because they enable the page designer to display a large number of choices in a compact format that most users know how to manipulate. When deciding between a checkbox, radio button group, or a selection list, here are some rough guidelines to follow:

  • If an option or setting has only two values that can be represented by on and off, use a checkbox.

  • If the option or setting has three or four values, use a group of three or four radio buttons.

  • If the option or setting has five or more values, use a selection list.
