Hello,

How to create in html writable drop down? A writable dropdown is an additional need for the company’s website. Would you love to give me some overview or idea on how to possibly make this? I am not that expert with html and php programming language but I can still learn from it by researching and making some online survey here in techyv. I am wishing for your help.

Waiting for your support.

How to create in html writable drop down?

Hello,

HTML is not that powerful enough to support writable drop down menu. It can only support drop down menu which is uneditable and selections are already fixed. Below is a sample code of a drop down menu in HTML.  
 
<select>
  <option value="pig">Pig</option>
  <option value="dog">Dog</option>
  <option value="rabbit">Rabbit</option>
  <option value="cat">Cat</option>
</select>
 
The <select> tag is supported by Firefox, chrome and Internet Explorer browsers.
 
It would probably be wise to integrate HTML with Java if you want a dynamic writable drop down box. Combo box creation in JavaScript is very simple and there are a lot of examples that you can get from the internet. Using Java in combo boxes uses readymade libraries and all you needed to do is to program them according to your needs.
 
The Oracle site provides tutorial on how to use and create Combo Boxes. Here they discuss all about uneditable and editable combo boxes, and also provides information on how to customize your drop down menus.
