Drop down lists in Thunkable X

Helping a couple of middle schoolers code an app using thunkable and they love it. We are struggling with the drop down list - they want a user to select from different vehicle types on a form

I looked at Drop-down Menu/Spinner Tutorial but it is using options that are not available like from - maybe we are missing something basic but is there a newer or different way to do this now?

Step 1 - Take a list and put the items you want
Step 2 - put a label above that list
Step 3 - Set list viewer visible to false


Step 1 - When label click set list viewer visible true.
Step 2 - When list viewer item click take a variable set that variable to item and set lsit viewer visible false.

If you want an example you may see the translators app by alebrt.

If you’re using the newer Drag and Drop interface, I’ve created this method:

You can also use a list viewer… it’s a ready-made component for displaying multiple choices and returning the choice that was made (item text and index position).
