I have a situation where an item that is selected from a dropdown needs a warning. The warning is to let the user know that the item is in a specific mode and that it won't behave as usual until the mode is changed.
When do you think this warning icon should appear, once the user selects the item(see option 1) or in the actual dropdown(see option 2)?
Either way the warning indicator will appear in the select input with a tooltip on hover.
just a note: the warning won't change the user's choice, it is just to inform him that he will not see what they expect to see while it is in the mode.
here is an illustration of my options(the text is just a placeholder) :
