LISTBOX Element

The LISTBOX element provides a way for users to select items from a list. These items can be specified by using ITEM elements as children of the LISTBOX element. If you need a list box control that is displayed only when needed, use the POPUP element, which is identical to the LISTBOX element except for the default value of the popUp attribute, which dictates its display behavior.

The LISTBOX element supports the following attributes.
