Drop Down List

Also called a 'combo-box'.

A drop-down list usually has a small arrow on the right, that you click on to reveal a list of choices. You then make a choice, this closes the drop down list and makes you selection appear in the drop-down field.

This is a very common software user interface element on forms (see also forms in the glossary).

Drop-down lists are very useful when you want to limit that choice of what the user can select.
