Selector box (drop-down list)

I've never heard a select or drop down list called a selector box before (maybe it's a translation from German), but it's still the same thing. 

Click for full size:

  1. Label - This is the label that a user sees next to the field that tells him what to enter.
  2. Required - Is this field required?
  3. Field - Actually this should say "Name", each field has it's own name which assists in identifying which field is which. If there are any spaces entered here, Typo3 will replace them with an underscore.  The field/name is not seen by the user.
  4. Size - here the size doesn't refer to how long/wide it is but rather to how tall it is or rather how many rows should be visible.  This might help if you wanted to show that the select was a multiple select.
  5. Auto size - this will automatically set the select to show all the options but no more.
  6. Multiple - this will allow users to select more than one option.
  7. List Options - Here list what you want the users to select from.  Each new option needs to be on it's own line.

When you add a selector box, none of the above fields are necessary, however the form and the email it sends would be very confusing if you didn't put in at the very least the Label and the Field (or name).  And if you don't put in options, then the select have anything in it to choose from!.
