List Box

Meaning – The term list box, refers to a control that contains a list of objects or settings choices that a user can select from. Depending on the settings, a list box can be set to allow the user to select only one of the available options or multiple options.

Predominantly, list boxes are graphical elements and are designed in such a way that the user clearly understands the query or prompt and the options available as valid selections.

Most of the time, the user is only allowed to select one option from the list box, but there are cases wherein shift selecting or control selecting the options can allow for multiple-choice selection as well.

Example of usage“The graphic designer was tasked with creating the list box for the survey that the organization wanted to carry out. This was to be a single option list box, so shift selecting was to be disabled.”
