|In Joomla! 1.5, form fields were parameters. For that version, you may want to use the corresponding Menu parameter type.|
The menu form field type provides a drop down list of the available menus from your Joomla! site. If the field has a saved value this is selected when the page is first loaded. If not, the default value (if any) is selected.
The first option on the list is always '- Select Menu -' (which is a translatable string) and is given the value 0.
Example XML field definition:
<field name="mymenu" type="menu" default="mainmenu" label="Select a menu" description="Select a menu" />
