Array ref which contains items that should be added at the top of the select box. Each item consists of an array ref with two entries, the first is the value and the second is the option that is displayed on the page. If the second is missing the value (first entry)is displayed. Example:

    addtop => [ [1 => 'first item'], [2 => 'second item']]

datasrcurl

This URL will be requested when the user types any input to request the data for the control. The characters the users has typed will be passed by the parameter query and the name of the datasrc attribute will be passed in the datasrc parameter.
