How to Set Values for Select/Dropdown list

1. Introduction #

Selecting an item from a list on a web page is a common requirement, but with different frameworks and component libraries, it can be tricky to figure out how to implement select-related operations. In this guide, we’ll show you how Clicknium handles these operations in various web UI frameworks.

There are two main types of UI controls for selecting items from a list:

(1) HTML Select tag
The Select HTML tag represents a control that provides a menu of options.

(2) Ant Design
Ant Design is a UI repository based on React that provides a variety of UI components, including a dropdown. For more information, please refer to here.
