  • Edit
  • You can use the Dropdown UI Pattern to allow users make a choice from several options. Use the Dropdown UI Pattern to offer a choice of more than four options. For a very large number of options, consider using the Dropdown Select UI Pattern to avoid loss of context.

    How to use the Dropdown UI Pattern

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Dropdown.

      The Dropdown widget is displayed.

    2. From the Toolbox, drag the Dropdown widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.

    3. Enter the Dropdown name in the Prompt placeholder and the Dropdown values in the Dropdown List placeholder.

    4. After following these steps and publishing the module, you can test the pattern in your app.
