by Ron Kurtus (updated 27 May 2023)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why would you use a drop-down list?

To add a new feature to the page

To provide specific choices for the user

To allow for text entry of data

2. Why must you query before populating a drop-down menu?

You need to get the data to populate the menu or list

You don't need a query in most cases

To see if data is available to populate the list

3. Why would you use two queries for a drop-down list in an editing page?

To get the existing value and a list of possible values

To add extra ColdFusion code

You query for each item in the list

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in ColdFusion Development. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
