Select Property Pages Dialog Box
Use this dialog box to edit the properties of select elements on HTML pages, and to insert option elements and values into them. An HTML select element is processed by the client Web browser.
To open the Select Property Pages dialog box
In Visual Web Developer, open an HTML page for editing in Design view.
From the HTML group of the Toolbox, drag a Select element onto the page.
The default markup for the element is added, ready to be configured.
Select the element (which looks like drop-down menu or list box), and then on the View menu, click Property Pages.
The Select Property Pages dialog box opens.
Some of these menus might not be available when the Visual Studio development environment is set to General Development settings.
Certain properties of a select element can also be edited in the Properties Window. A select element is displayed as a drop-down list if its Size property is not set or is set to one (1); it is displayed as a list box if its Size property is set to two (2) or greater.
For more information, see HTML Tab, Toolbox. When designing an ASP.NET Web page, you can also drag onto the page the DropDownList or ListBox controls from the Toolbox. These Web server controls will also be rendered as select elements. Their option lists are commonly furnished via data binding.
The following properties can be set in the Select Property Pages dialog box.
