The DDSList is a frequently-used user interface control for Mobile RPG. It has four distinct “personalities”:

  2. A radiobutton list (which provides a radiobutton list that accepts multiple choices).
  3. A checkbox list (which provides a checkbox list that accepts one choice).
  4. A dropdown list (which provides a single-select dropdown)
