The Drop Down field allows users to select one option from a list.
- Field Label
Enter the label of the form field. This is the field title the user will see when filling out the form.
Enter the description for the form field. This will be displayed to the user and provide some direction on how the field should be filled out or selected.
Add Choices to this field. You can mark each choice as checked by default by using the radio buttons that appear to the left of each choice. Add a new choice by clicking the PLUS icon and delete a choice by clicking the DELETE icon.
- show values
Checking this option will allow you to specify a value for each choice. Choice values are not displayed to the user viewing the form, but are accessible to administrators when viewing the entry.

- Bulk Add / Predefined Choices
Clicking the Bulk Add / Predefined Choices allows you to select a category and customize the predefined choices or paste your own list to bulk add choices.
These properties set rules for how the data should be handled.
A required field will prevent the form from being submitted if it is not filled out or selected.
A field set to allow no duplicates will require that a value entered in a field does not currently exist in the entry database for that field.
This field allows you to enter text which will provide more information on the expected input.
Determines whether the description will be above or below the field when displayed.
Custom Validation Message
If you would like to override the default error validation for a field, enter it here. This message will be displayed if there is an error with this field when the user submits the form.
Custom CSS Class
Enter the CSS class name you would like to use in order to override the default styles for this field.

By selecting this option, the chosen jQuery script will be applied to this field, enabling search capabilities to Drop Down fields and a more user-friendly interface for Multi Select fields.

- Admin Field Label
Enter the admin label of the form field. Entering a value in this field will override the Field Label when displayed in the Gravity Forms administration tool.
This allows you to define what the drop down will default to (if anything).
Select the visibility for this field. Field visibility set to Everyone will be visible by the user submitting the form. Form field visibility set to Admin Only will only be visible within the Gravity Forms administration tool. Setting a field to Admin Only is useful for creating fields that can be used to set a status or priority level on submitted entries.

Check this option to enable data to be passed to the form and pre-populate this field dynamically. Data can be passed via Query Strings, Shortcode and/or Hooks.
