    How do I get rid of the blank line on the drop down box?

    Asked by kicsint on August 22, 2014 at 06:15 PM

    There is a blank line option on my drop down box that people are choosing on a required field.  How do I get rid of the line so that they have to choose an actual option and not just a blank line?

    There are 2 ways to do this on the Dropdown field.

    1. Assign a default Selected option

    2. Assign a dummy value in the Empty Text Option

    You can find this options in the Properties of Dropdown field.


    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.
