Element: Dropdown Menu

Created by Mike B, Modified on Thu, 28 Dec, 2023 at 11:43 AM by Mike B


You can insert many options into a single drop with the Dropdown element. The dropdown menu is great to use when forcing a user to select only one option in any given category.

Watch It In-Action

In this example, you can see how the price changes on each option.

Near Search Bar

When more than 7 items are inside a dropdown, a search bar will appear for your users.

Benefits, Features & Use Cases

Offering dropdown menus can help users avoid scrolling and can quickly get them access to your form's content. 

Use cases: 

  1. You may want your customers to select a product from a list within the same category. For example, Shirt Type, Room Size, etc. 
  2. Each product in the dropdown may have a different price
  3. Use it to ask a question to your customer. For example, What shipping method do you prefer?
