      Difference Between Popup Menu and Dropdown List

      Post

      Dear Admins & Experts,

       So what is the difference between Popup Menu and Drop Down List. 
       If Popup list means we need to import the values from the Value List, at the same the Drop down List also need to import their values from Value List, isn't it.?
       They both have same type or it contains any different features.
       So I just need to know what is the difference & why!!

      Thanks,
      Suresh

          They look different.

          Drop down lists have an "arrow" option not found for pop up menus.

          Drop down lists can be set up as auto-complete lists where you enter several characters and the list filters down to just values that start with those characters.

          When "only show values from second field" is specified, the second field value remains visible in the field with a popup menu format when focus leaves the field even though the first field value has been entered. For a drop down list, the first field value appears when you exit the field.
