Drop-down list properties
On the General tab, you can specify the general properties of the drop-down list (field name, pop-up tip, size, etc.).
Field Name - This is a required property. It will be displayed above the field in form editing mode. Each field must have a unique name. Field names must not start or end with a full stop or contain two or more consecutive full stops.
Tooltip - The text of the tip that appears when you point to the field in fill-out mode.
Required - If this option is selected, the field will be marked as required.
- The width and height of the field are independent of each other.
- The width and height of the field can only be changed in proportion to each other.
On the Appearance tab, you can specify frame thickness and color, fill color, and font size and color.
Fill Color - The fill color.
Stroke Color - The color of the frame enclosing the field.
Thickness - The thickness of the frame enclosing the field.
Font Color - The color of text items selected from the drop-down list.
Font Name - The font to be used for text items selected from the drop-down list.
Font Size - The size of text items selected from the drop-down list.
Set as Default Style - The current settings will be used for any new drop-down lists that you create.
List Items tab
On the List Items tab, you can edit the list of items by adding, deleting or modifying items. You can also move an item up or down, make an item the default choice, or allow the user to enter a custom value not included on the list.
Set as Default - Make the selected item the default choice. This choice will be suggested to the user by default, but the user will be free to choose any other item from the list. If the user clears data from all the fields, the default choice will be restored.
To specify a different item as the default choice, click that item and then click Set as Default.
