I have a list in my form:
<option value="default">Please choose a product...</option>
<option value="bin_stores">Bin Stores</option>
Just wondering what kind of validation would I have to perform on a drop-down list? Never used one in my forms before so I'm not quite sure if I need to validate anything?
I have 2 text areas so the only validation I perform on these 2 is making sure the user entered 400 characters or less.
I was racking my brains last night thinking of a way that my list needs to be validated and to be honest I cannot think of one. The value which someone selects will always be 'default' or one of the product names i.e 'benches' or 'gates'.
The only thing I can see to validate is whether or not the user selected something, in which case I need to distinguish which product it was.
Sorry if it's still a little vague.
