A list box is a one-column arrangement of items (a text string, graphics, or both) from which users can select either one or multiple values.
A list box has a limited use case--for a single column of items that requires scrolling. The more preferred methods for presenting data in a list are:
- A drop-down menu for single selection and when the list is short
- A group of check boxes for multiple selection
Your list box should include a filter control so that users can view only the list items that meet a specified criterion.
