  • id: the object's ID, used by UISets
  • position: the object's position. Use the pixels or rows and columns coordinates format
  • values: comma-separated list of values. When selecting an item from the list, the corresponding value from this list is sent
  • labels: comma-separated list of labels corresponding to the values. If missing, values will be shown instead
  • css: optional. Defines the CSS style for the input field
  • css: optional. html template to be used for each item


(select!<id> <position>; <values>; <labels>; <css>; <template>)


(select!myselect r1c1; 1,2,3; one,two,three;)


The template is HTML code that is applied to every item. An item's label is split into parts using the pipe character. These parts are replaced inside the template's code to form the final item's source.

%<n> (with n starting from 1) is used to include each part of the item's label inside the HTML. To avoid the % symbol to be replaced, use &#37; instead.

E.g. If the template is:


and the labels are:


the resulting items will have the following html code:
