Select items from lists
To provide a consistent experience for users to select items from lists, follow these guidelines to determine which control to use to create a list.
Use radio buttons when you have 2-5 options and users can only select one value.
HTML <select> field
Use an HTML
<select> field when you have 6-20 values and users do not need to search for items.
Use checkboxes when you have 2-5 values and users can select multiple values.
Use a SKY UX select field component when:
- You have user-defined values that can accumulate and become too cumbersome for the other controls.
- You have more than 5 values and users can select multiple values.
- You have more than 20 values and users can only select one value.
- You need to display items with titles and descriptions.
