I am using the CFSELECT statement below to populate a drop-down box. I need the first choice to be left blank. Other than creating a blank or NULL option in the database, it is possible? I need to make the first option blank and the drop-down required. Below is what I am using - thank you.

 <cfselect name="TypeOfWidget"
             query="TypeOfWidget"
             value="TypeOfWidget"
             display="TypeOfWidget"
             selected="#VARIABLES.TypeOfWidget#">
   </cfselect>
