<cfselect>

Used inside <cfform>, cfselect lets you construct a drop-down list box form control.

You can populate the drop-down list box from a query, or using the option tag.

Use option elements to populate lists.

The syntax for the option tag is the same as for its HTML counterpart.

This tag must have a body.

This tag is also supported within <cfscript>
