This component displays a drop-down menu to a user in which each menu item has its own output path. You can configure this component to appear in a number of ways on the form: for example, an option, a link, or an image. You can also configure how many items appear in the drop-down menu.
Use this component when you want the process to exit the form immediately after the user clicks an item in the drop-down menu: for example, if you want the form to refresh with new data based on the item that the user selects in the drop-down menu. You can set the other components on the form to display values based on the value of the drop-down menu output.
