How to Create PHP Drop Down Menu


A Dropdown list is a combination of items in a list. In the dropdown list menu only the title is visible but not the contents. The contents are shown only when the user activates it by a small arrow. The user may select an item from the menu by dragging the mouse from the menu title or by clicking the title and then clicking the item.

We can say a drop down list is a box containing a list of multiple items. A drop-down list is a list in which the selected item is always visible, and the others are visible on demand by clicking a drop-down button. The main advantages of a drop down list are to save space because the number of views is not limited by space.
