What??? :)

Is this an English question?
You're asking what's the best way to refer to the options on your select?

I would call it: Available Options

Not sure I understand your question. By default a <select> will show 1 option, allowing the user to dropdown and select the others. If you need to see more than one option at a time, add a size attribute to the <select>

<select size="3">
   <option value="1">user can see this first choice</option>
   <option value="2">user can see this second choice</option>
</select>

Open in new window

@ChrisStanyon: I think I was misunderstood.

I wasn't complaining about the quality of the English used in the question.
I meant to ask if his question was about how to explain what the <select> data was about in English... and so I ended up explaining it.

P.S.: I'm also not an English native speaker, I'm Portuguese! :)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi rgb192. For the first thing maybe you want to know how to make a value selected in the select, isn't it?

<select size="3">
   <option value="1" selected>user can see this first choice</option>
   <option value="2">user can see this second choice</option>
</select>

Open in new window


this way user can see 'user can see this first choice'


<select size="3">
   <option value="1">user can see this first choice</option>
   <option value="2" selected>user can see this second choice</option>
</select>

Open in new window


Instead this way user can see 'user can see this second choice'

Hope to have understood your first question, but I'm sure to not understand thiese lines:

what are these called
'viable options'
'what user can see'

These are called "options" just like the tag name would suggest.  Each "option" has a required attribute of "value" and optional attributes like "id" or "class", etc.  When the client makes a single selection, it is called the "selected option" and if the multiple attribute is made available, those options that the client selected would be called the "selected options."
