public List<OptionData> options ;



This is the list of options within the Dropdown. Each option contains Text and/or image data that you can specify using OptionData before adding to the Dropdown list. This also unlocks the ability to edit the Dropdown, including the insertion, removal, and finding of options, as well as other useful tools.
