Dropdown inputs are basic inputs for selecting an option, or a set of options, in a list of options. They are commonly used when building forms.
When users click at the input it reveals the options to select.
A dropdown input configuration is divided in 3 different sections. In the first section you can configure it's dimensions, position, responsivity and all of it's arguments.
Since Dimensions, Position and Responsivity are common to all elements, you can checkout more about how they work here.
The Variable argument is useful for binding an input value to a variable of your application. If the variable is an object, you can add the Variable Path too. Tab Index and Accessibility Label are used to configure how screen readers interact with your application. You can also configure the Options, if the input accepts a null value or if it accepts multiple selections.
The second configuration section let's you change you input styles. You can change it's Shadow and Border.
You can change the styles based on user interaction. They all have a Standard state configuration but you can change styles during Hover and Click interactions as well.
The third configuration section let's you change you input Placeholder and No Options Label. Your users can type to filter the options, this label is displayed when no options match the typed value.
