Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (OFFICE-3881) [text] Proposal: drop-down listbox field

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-3881?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=59308#comment-59308 ] 

Michael Stahl commented on OFFICE-3881:

the "schema changes" should mention that the addition belongs into this "choice" element:

	<define name="paragraph-content">

the listed parent elements are simply the ones that may have "paragraph-content" children.

(btw: the lists of parent/children/attributes were auto-generated from the schema in ODF 1.2, does anybody still know how that was done?)

the text content is the same as the currently selected value, which is similar to every other field.

just tried it out, in LO you can insert this in Insert->Fields->More Fields->Functions->Input list and get:

        <text:drop-down text:name="quux">
           <text:label text:value="foo"/>
           <text:label text:current-selected="true" text:value="bar"/>
           <text:label text:value="baz"/>

=> i agree with Regina's comment that the text:current-selected attribute needs adding
=> not sure about making text:name mandatory, or rather i don't have an opinion on it because
     i don't see much difference between having to write the attribute with an empty value and optional
