Creating a drop-down list in Play Framework 2.6

As a brief note to self before I delete this code, this is how you create a drop-down list in Play Framework 2.6:

@* adding 'size to creates a select/option area (single or multi-select) *@
    'id -> "category",
    '_help -> "Select one, any one"

In that code, categories is passed into the Play template like this:

categories: Seq[(String, String)]

I’m only deleting this code because the requirement changed and a drop-down list isn’t required in this Play Framework template; the code works just fine. Also note that I treat the category as nonEmptyText in the form mapping in the controller.

If you needed to see how to create a drop-down list in a Play Framework 2.6 template, I hope this is helpful.
