'''When to use'''
+
 
+
Use a list when there are six or more mutually exclusive choices. When offering between three and six options, use a [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Combo_Box|Combo Box]] and for less than three use [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Radio_Buttons|Radio Buttons]].
+
 
+
 
+
'''Label and Access'''
+
 
+
Always give list controls a label, positioned above or to the left of the list, in sentence capitalization. Provide an accelerator key in the label that allows the user to give focus directly to the list.

+
'''Size and Alignment'''
+
 
+
Make the list control large enough that it can show at least four items at a time without scrolling. For lists of ten or more items, increase this minimum size as appropriate.
+
 
+
If the list appears in a dialog or utility window, consider making the window and the list within it resizable so that the user can choose how many list items are visible at a time without scrolling. Each time the user opens this dialog, set its dimensions to those that the user last resized it to.
