For dropdown options that have an "Other" option that will then display an textbox, what typically is the label for this textbox? Should the label be Other?

    The textbox might just be next to the dropdown, using the dropdown and the dropdown's label as its label. Sep 23, 2021 at 18:03
  • As well as location, it could be disabled/hidden when not needed so that when it is enabled/revealed the user knows what it related to. Sometimes they have placeholder text "Other..." to make it more obvious.

  • Is there any reason that "Other" wouldn't be a suitable label? What are some of the options in the list?
