    Is there a maximum number of entries for Drop Down fields?

    Asked by bzehr on October 10, 2011 at 04:24 PM

    I attempted to add a dropdown field with 15000 entries - it was cut off in the middle of the 2400th entry - is there a maximum allowed here?

    I am not sure if there is a limit, but I would personally advise against adding that many drop down options. For one, there's only so much information a browser can handle.

    There is a possibility that a browser will have a hard time processing our form builder's scripts if there's such a number of information that it has to store in its memory cache.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I was able to add 15000 entries to the dropdown field, but I believe that this is a bad practice. I think that dropdown field is not designed for such a big amount of entries, also openning 15000 entries in browser will cause a lot of troubles for most users.

    If you describe your goal we can try to find some better solution.

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
