How much do you want/expect users to customize the position? Option A indicates your preferred default value: top-left.

I would like a third option, like the Microsoft Excel cell border widget: The GUI has the field labeled "None" ordered in parallel to the various line styles: all of them are immediately accessible. That makes sense: Only one of them can be active at any given point in time. Logically though it could be seen as a two-step process, like in your ...

Summary As others have stated, it can depend on a variety of factors, such as what this control is used for. However, my immediate response is very emphatically that option A is clearly superior.

Using a select dropdown element makes the screen easier to read, especially when your page contains only a few Yes, rarely No, and most of None. The real problem I am trying to solve was selecting Yes with one click and keeping the advantage of the dropdown menu. Here is my potential solution - the icon is added to change (in circle) the selected value of ...
