    i'll try with my poor english :)
    It is a problem to place a DropDown inside a label-tag?

    select id="form-register-title" class="required title"></select>

    The DropDown doesn't open when clicking, but only by clicking the label-text ("Title").
    A workaround/bugfix is nice :)

    Thank you!

    /edit: The focus-event on the select element should trigger the DropDown open(dropdown)-event.
    Cause it isnt possible to access the DropDown via tabulator.
    A nice feature is to step up or down with the corresponding keys and select/activate with tab.

    Hello Sebastian,

    The DropDownList widget closes on blur. In this case the label will cause a blur of the widget. That is why the popup will not open on click. What I can suggest you is to not put the dropdownlist inside a label:

    <select id="form-register-title" class="required title"></select>

    As to the second question, you can access the DropDownList via a keyboard. It works like the normal select element. When you focus the widget you can use Up/Down arrow or to open the dropdownlist using Alt+down arrow.
