Select

Creates a drop-down menu with the heading caption. If created in the "elements" area, the drop-down menu sets a property to the selected value value when accepted.
The parameter "name" defines which property is set.

With MultiSelect it is important to ensure that all value arrays contain the same names

If Select is used within lists, there is no MultiSelect.

Example
